一項大膽且創新的研究,常玩電玩遊戲的人將更快樂及長壽。2009年知名遊戲設計師Jane遭受嚴重的腦震盪,因為沒有適時的治療留下許多後遺症:無法清楚的思考及工作,並且經常起不了床。這些後遺症讓Jane變得焦慮及沮喪,甚至產生自殺的念頭。與其讓自己不斷陷入痛苦,Jane決定將她恢復的過程,轉化為發明一種治癒遊戲:SuperBetter。透過這款電玩遊戲及國家衛生研究院的研究,已經超過一百萬的人因為SuperBetter變得更堅強、快樂及健康。

SuperBetter的出現不只是一個單純的電玩遊戲,背後也代表著更深層的科學研究意義。作者將在本書揭露透過電玩遊戲、運動型遊戲或是解謎遊戲的研究,人們是如何透過這些遊戲回應壓力、挑戰及痛苦。人類是如何透過遊戲思維,自我培育出全新的自我恢復能力及應變能力,當人類透過虛擬的遊戲挑戰,進而刺激心理,使人更加樂觀、更有創造力、更具勇氣及決心去面對真實的世界。

• 增強控制自我的注意力,包括思想及感覺
• 轉化所有人成為潛在的盟友,並加強人與人之間的關係
•刺激自我潛力,加強自我英雄特質,例如意志力、同情心及決心

透過SuperBetter將近100項關卡,使你更有勇氣、更有企圖心、更加約束自己向目標前進。內容中也將提出更多有效的論證及範例,證實面對疾病、外傷及各種挫折時,也能透過遊戲讓身體及心理的適應力加分,更容易集中精神及加強自我約束力。

Jane McGonigal博士,目前為未來學會(IFTF)的資深研究員。她所著作的《Reality Is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World》被紐約時報評選為最佳暢銷書。她的作品也經常在《經濟學人》、《Wired》網站、《紐約時報》,甚至是MTV台、CNN及NPR發表。《BusinessWeek》稱她為前十大最值得關注的發明家;《Fast Company》雜誌評選為前100大最有創造力的企業家;《Game Developers Magazine》稱她為遊戲產業50大最重要的人物,而她在TED的演講已超過百萬點閱率。 

An innovative guide to living gamefully, based on the program that has already helped nearly half a million people achieve remarkable personal growth

In 2009, internationally renowned game designer Jane McGonigal suffered a severe concussion. Unable to think clearly or work or even get out of bed, she became anxious and depressed, even suicidal. But rather than let herself sink further, she decided to get better by doing what she does best: she turned her recovery process into a resilience-building game. What started as a simple motivational exercise quickly became a set of rules for “post-traumatic growth” that she shared on her blog. These rules led to a digital game and a major research study with the National Institutes of Health. Today nearly half a million people have played SuperBetter to get stronger, happier, and healthier.

But the life-changing ideas behind SuperBetter are much bigger than just one game. In this book, McGonigal reveals a decade’s worth of scientific research into the ways all games—including videogames, sports, and puzzles—change how we respond to stress, challenge, and pain. She explains how we can cultivate new powers of recovery and resilience in everyday life simply by adopting a more “gameful” mind-set. Being gameful means bringing the same psychological strengths we naturally display when we play games—such as optimism, creativity, courage, and determination—to real-world goals.

Drawing on hundreds of studies, McGonigal shows that getting superbetter is as simple as tapping into the three core psychological strengths that games help you build:

   • Your ability to control your attention, and therefore your thoughts and feelings 
   • Your power to turn anyone into a potential ally, and to strengthen your existing relationships 
   • Your natural capacity to motivate yourself and super-charge your heroic qualities, like willpower, compassion, and determination 

SuperBetter contains nearly 100 playful challenges anyone can undertake in order to build these gameful strengths. It includes stories and data from people who have used the SuperBetter method to get stronger in the face of illness, injury, and other major setbacks, as well as to achieve goals like losing weight, running a marathon, and finding a new job.

As inspiring as it is down to earth, and grounded in rigorous research, SuperBetter is a proven game plan for a better life. You’ll never say that something is “just a game” again.
