Este estudio investiga descriptivamente el uso de aplicaciones basadas en juegos en entornos de aprendizaje y enseñanza. Cada resultado empírico fue categorizado según el título del artículo, año de publicación, número de citas en la base de datos Web of Science (WoS) en SCI, SSCI y AHCI, teoría del aprendizaje, principio de aprendizaje, género del juego, elementos de diseño del juego, muestras de resultados de aprendizaje y destrezas de investigación, así como según dominios de aprendizaje. Se seleccionaron un total de 190 artículos de investigación originales relacionados con juegos como fuentes en seis revistas arbitradas con un periodo de 12 años, de 2005 a 2017. La investigación encontró que los estudios de juegos, así como la comprensión cognitiva del campo y su conocimiento a nivel de aplicación fueron más efectivos para el aprendizaje y logros de los estudiantes en términos de retención.
