Jane McGonigal’s cool new TED talk, The game that can give you 10 extra years of life, is based on the chapter SuperBetter Or How to Turn Recovery Into a Multiplayer Experience from her book Reality is Broken.

McGonigal’s really great at expressing her personal experience with head trauma and how a game structure helped her get better by thinking of herself as Jane the Concussion Slayer. I really appreciate McGonigal’s positive outlook on gaming and the human creature and the hope that it creates.

Here’s a link to her previous Ted talk Gaming Can Make a Better World.
