Popular games inspire players to invest huge amounts of time to achieve success within a game. Modern games no longer employ a win-or-lose-all concept; they build on successive strategies and actions to win smaller and progressively more difficult victories that further motivate the player to continue playing and striving to achieve the next level of success.
Game-based learning theory takes this same concept and builds it into an inspired method of presenting a given curriculum. Students work to achieve a certain level of success, choosing actions and experiencing the consequences of those actions along the way. They learn by trial and error how to plan and execute the proper methods or actions that will lead to success and avoid failure.
