Description

Many serious games dedicated to the health sector have been identified. Within this wide range, the
authors have explored the Serious games offering an educational dimension and targeting either individuals
or health-care professionals. Based on a corpus built around this orientation, the goal is to
determine whether or not it is possible to find a use, targeted or not, involving metaphorical contexts
among different titles. In the corpus studied, no metaphor is used for serious game targeting healthcare
professionals contrary to serious games targeting individuals. For this target, the game universe
is mainly metaphorical. A discussion in the light of didactic and motivational arguments suggests that
a metaphorical universe could be beneficial in the case where more transversal skills are targeted.
