The new games have computers in them, not the other way around.

At PicNic09 both Alice Taylor (Channel 4) as Kevin Slavin (Area/Code) stated that games will get out of the room. Mobile devices enable that. And since gaming is about interaction you might improve that by organizing synchronized experiences. In the new games you fulfill missions in the real world, like finding a message in a certain place. If you happen to recognize other players at a certain location, the game touches the real world. And this might make you fanatic.
