Abstract

In this paper the authors provide an overview of the growth of the interactive games industry, globally, and maps its audiences. The paper will outline the industry's current strategies to deal with 'age compression' - the disappearance of childhood - together with its aim to keep people playing games for a lifetime. The authors will then look at how the Yu-Gi-Oh story lays the scaffold for children to develop higher order learning strategies and concepts that they normally would not attempt.
