Serious Games – Theory and Reality

The talk is devided into two parts. First a new taxonomy of serious games is presented. Therefore we have developed a two step model. We define four major segments of the industry. In the second step there is a finer seperation between the field where we believe serious games are set up. Secondly we are going to proof if this model works using two projects from the University of Paderborn. In our conclusions we discuss the question if the theory of serious games really fits to the actual situation in the market. We also recommend that the public discussion has to focus on the question why governmental money is needed to compensate losses in the market.
