YouTube is the world’s online video portal, but if a recent patent application filed by Google is any indication, it may be looking to become an interactive gaming portal as well.

The patent, ‘Web-based System for Generation of Interactive Games Based on Digital Videos,’ was filed by Google earlier this year but published this month. The Google patent seems to detail a system where the creation of video annotations can be used for gaming-like mechanics and video behavior change.
