This study aims to discuss whether game-based learning with the integration of games and digital learning could enhance not only the flow experience in learning but achieve the same flow experience in pure games. In addition, the authors discovered that whether the game-based learning could make learners to reveal higher cognitive load. The effects of computer-assisted learning, computer games, and computer-assisted learning on the fifth-grade students are compared. The results showed that game-based learning is able to promote and achieve the same flow experience in games as well as increase the learners' cognitive load. However, repeatedly using such software would not present significant difference on cognitive load.
