The Annual CGTrader Scholarship; $3000 are waiting for you

What are the first aspects that cross your mind whenever you think about gaming? Is it addiction, loss of human interaction? Is it loss of sense of reality? The concept of gamification is larger than this and often opens new doors in business and academic fields. Games are extremely engaging which means that they can be used to convert any boring activity into an enticing and pleasant one. Currently are a lot of examples of how learning can be playful and physical exercising are getting easier and easier to commit. The medical field has also had its breakthroughs when mixed with playing through medical treatments which make the procedures easier to go through and more effective.
