    Abstract

    It is the main concern of this paper to address questions regarding the methods, by which digital games might assist the development of skills in individuals who play them. In order to facilitate this aim based on existing literature and theories, an analysis will be formed from a broad spectrum of digital games (texts). These texts are specifically split into ‘Skill Development: Explicit’, ‘Skill Development: Implicit’, and Skill Development: Incidental” texts according to the proposed intent of the text. These will be viewed through a number of lenses from within educational and psychological literature. Finally, this paper addresses whether variants of digital games affect domain of skill development, and considers the implications of this within both game design and in the wider context of learning.
