2014-2015 Annual Assessment

Background

The video game industry is rapidly growing in America and throughout the world. 59 percent of all Americans play video games; 51 percent of American households have a gaming platform; and the average age of video-gamers today is 31.

Recommendation

Israel and the Jewish world should cooperate and utilize this medium as a public diplomacy (hasbara) platform. In order to improve the quality and experience of the video game industry in Israel, we recommend encouraging institutions of higher education to offer more courses and programs for video game production and design. Furthermore, we recommend enabling young people in the Israeli video-game industry to gain experience in large and diversified European and American video game companies.
