Abstract:
Educational video games constitute some of the main edutainment applications currently on the market. However, the development of video games as educational tools is very difficult due to their multidisciplinary nature (fun and education). Player Experience is a good measure of the level of fun and education presented to players and determines, to some extent, the success of an educational video game. This paper examines the importance of the role of Player Experience in motivating and enhancing the concept of learning through play, and highlights the role of Educational Playability attributes as suitable and effective tools to analyze and measure the experience obtained by a player during a game. The paper also discusses the role of a balanced Educational Video Game that provides a good level of motivation and engagement in order to improve player experience.
