I completely agree with you! Games are extremely powerful learning strategies.
Gamers love
* Unexpected rewards
* Complete control and power
* Challenges and obstacles
* A goal and smaller milestones to reach that goal
* New skills acquired to meet the main goal
* The thrill element!

Gamers are eager to learn more to reach their goal. Draw the learner's curiosity. Let the learner make mistakes so that he/she can see the consequences of his/her actions. Game experiences help understanding and retention. Learning is therefore redefined as it becomes fun.
