GAMING (types?)

Reading McGonigal (and to be frank, not quite enjoying her writing style) made me think of the types or genres of games. I don't believe that asking the question, "Do you think playing games can help change the world?" is quite the right way to phrase it. Rather, I think that it should be more specific because the perceived "usefulness" of gaming alters dependent on the type. Perhaps it would be productive to diffrentiate between gaming genres? (I realize that this type of categorization might difficult but I think as though this would be important)
