What are Serious games? 

A Serious game is a game designed for a primary purpose, other than pure entertainment. A serious game is usually a simulation which has the look and feel of a game, but is actually a simulation of real-world events or processes. The main goal of a serious game is usually to train or educate users, though it may have other purposes, such as marketing or advertisement.
