Role "At Heart" : Roles' impact on experienced gamers' problem-solving skills in real life (English)
Abstract [en]

Games offer a safe and motivational environment that allows and encourages trial and error. A gamer can act in the game without any real consequences in real life. Thereby a gamer is offered the opportunity to develop a broad set of skills. Games have earlier been proven to develop gamer’s problem-solving skills. Roles, as an important part of a game’s structure, contribute to a deepened and more certain development of a diversity of skills – problem solving as one of them. In this paper we examine the relation between roles and gamer’s development of their problem-solving skills in real life – whether it exits and if so, to what extent.

We’ve found that roles encourage a creative form of problem solving and that gamers develop their problem-solving skills in real life differently depending on which role they play as. Each role posses a unique set of skills, thereby their performance differs depending on the situation. Gamers develop their problem- solving skills to different extents since the roles require different actions to solve problems in the game.
