Huizinga s Play Theory
Huizinga famously argues that play is essentially not a serious activity, but his writing is notoriously elusive on this point. [ What does the expression "not serious" mean here? The exact meaning and implications of this thesis continue to raise difficult problems of interpretation (Bogost, 2006). There is an important context for this debate. Many designers in the "serious games" movement
have called for games that make a difference to people's lives (Frasca, 2006). In particular, serious gaming is often considered a medium of education and sometimes also social change. Are these efforts incompatible with Huizinga's claims about the fundamental difference between play and seriousness? Does the serious game designer misunderstand the essential nature of play? ............ ]
