    Digital Games as a means of learning have become more important in recent years. Infrastructural and sociological developments have created fertile grounds for game innovations, making use of latest technology and being welcomed by new generations of learners. This chapter focuses on an overview of the current state of the art of learning games, explaining different perspectives. As the gamers’ generation has now grown up, the educational contexts for life-long learning like higher and vocational education are moving into the scope of game based learning and therefore deserve special attention.
