Playing the News

Eric Brown and Asi Burak of Impact Games have created more than 100 games under the “Play the News” banner. The idea is that people get lots of exposure to sound bites with RSS feeds and 24 hour news channels, but they may not be processing or understanding the complexities of the stories. Topics for the games range from the U.S. election to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

You can read more about the games here. Is this really interactive? What do you think?
