ABSTRACT

In this study, it was aimed to reveal the progress that the games follow in the process of transferring from Generation X to Generation Z. Being a qualitative study, interviews were used for data collection; interviews were conducted with 10 participants and the data was analysed using descriptive analysis. According to the results of the analysis it was found that the games played had significant differences in terms of content and venue between generations, where an apparent break from the nature occurred; children of Generation Z have a tendency towards indoor games. Therefore, taking measures allowing the children of Generation Z to spend more and high-quality time in nature may be effective on directing children’s indoor tendency towards outdoor.
