Our Trend's Impact Employment, Politics and Government


Our impact is on employment, politics and government and how MMOs have and will effect these areas. MMOs are a new step in technology and technology is the worlds future. someway, somehow these games will eventually effect us all.

Overview of this Trend's Impact on Employment


Current Impact

-It helps relax the working class after a day at work.

-It helps working class "refresh" their memory through different entertaining and amusing ways.

-Allow working class to "collaborate" with their peers & managers to talk about projects they are working on. (http://www.protonmedia.com/)

-Pilots can practice through flight simulators

-The number of Jobs that are offered to kids is because kids nowdays are getting closer to technology

-The jobs requires you to have film development, writing, animation and 3D

Future

-Military Personal can 'practice' tactics, negotiations, interrogations, etc without physically hurting live people.

-Drivers can learn roads & shortcuts without getting stuck into traffic.

-Hospital Staff can practice through 'surgical emulators' through games.

-Virtual "working" environment which may allow workers to do their work at home instead of going to the office! (ProtonMedia) [*HINT* look at the website and see if you can 'use' the Video on it... looks really pwnage. (Probesphere Demo]

-Violence is one of the issue being addressed by the Government and how most of the gaming industry is encouraging the massive population that plays that certain game. Now that video games are now becoming a hit trend there is more room for violence in this world.

-You would probably need to learn how to collaborate well with computers because very soon computers will be doing a lot of the work for us. you will also need to relate to children of the future and know how they work.

-The employees need to work harder because of how technical the world is. The majority of employers will be wanting someone who is familiar with.

Education? Society? Behavior? What needs to happen at the college level (and younger) to produce members of the work force who are competent in the future? What needs to change?

What needs to happen to produce employees who are ready for the business world in the future:

-Team Work; playing games such as "Counter Strike: Source" "World Of Warcraft" "Guild Wars and many other "team oriented" games will encourage people to join "guilds/ clans" and introduce a new era of "team work" & dedication.

-Helps prepare people for 'difficulties' ahead where they have to work as a 'team' and solve internal issues. [AKA: improves "People Skills"]

-Behaviors can be improved through gaming by learning that 'arguing with each other on the "Internet(z)" is retarded. So why argue in "real life"

Current Impact
The government is becoming more and more worried about the younger population and how they are playing games the encourage violence. the younger kids watch what is on TV yet they don't realize what is going on around them. They feel as though their LIVING IN THEIR OWN virtual world. many of these ideas are either powered by Multi player games on the internet, X box, play station or Nintendo. There are also older men who can manipulate children who use the game for fun and get them to do things that are a bit horrible to imagine. You never know who you are talking to. There are some possibilities to this multi playing gaming industry. They could possibly incorporate education into the games but make it seem like there nothing better. The government is also making profits form the gaming industry. They have invested in quite a few industries and making quite a large profit from these organizations.

Future

How will politics and government change, if at all, because of this trend?
In the future, as the games become better the industry should be creating more money for the government.In the future violence will one of the issue being addressed by the Government and how most of the gaming industry will be encouraging the massive population that plays that certain game and that video games are now becoming a hit trend and there will be more features on Video games to choose from. The future still holds violence in this world but can be restricted from being so great. If the government act on this in the right manner then maybe it can reduce the violence being portrait in games. In the future, the internet will probably end up getting higher security so that a lot of older people can't get onto sites to harass the younger kids. as technology develops so will everything around it!

What needs to happen to have more effective governments

The Governments need to realize that while these games seem like just games to all the politicians, to kids and teenagers and some adults these games are why they wake up in the morning. Identity theft, kids thinking that the games are real, and sexual harassment are the three biggest threats when logging on to any one of these virtual online games. our governments need to find a way to regulate these games because the truth of the matter is that these games are the future and we need a safe future. This is the truth and if we sit back and do nothing about it our future will be dark indeed. It may be possible in the future for politicians to get on a game that simulates political campaigns and could help politicians to choose which campaign they should run to get them into office and it will also help them to understand the demands of the people that they are representing.
