The purpose of this chapter is to introduce an overall classification system for Serious Games. [...] Key Method This theoretical framework will be used to review previous classification systems and discuss their limitations. We will then introduce a new classification that addresses a number of these limitations: the G/P/S model. This classifies games according to both their “serious-related” and “game-related” characteristics, and combines the strengths of several previous classification systems.Expand

Classification Of Educational Games According To Their Complexity And The Player's Skills
TLDR
The authors offer to divide the level of complexity of the game into three levels: the simplest tasks (which form routine skills) are accompanied today with the maximum entertainment content (the level "learning without noticing") and the increase in the complexity ofThe task, the entertainment component decreases, since an increasing amount of game space is required to explain the tasks.
