October 08, 2018 / Kacy Zurkus
Director of game research and development for the Institute for the Future, Jane McGonigal, opened her luncheon keynote at the 2018 Security Congress with what she considered exciting news by announcing that human beings have reached a milestone: People spend 2.5 billion minutes a day playing League of Legends. “To put that in perspective, that’s the equivalent of having a company of 20,250,833 employees who do nothing but play League of Legends all day,” McGonigal said. Lest the audience grow too alarmed, McGonigal quickly launched into evidence supporting the theory that playing games actually has a positive impact on productivity.
