Gamification: thoughts

no time for games

  • Gamification can be easily used for manipulation: leaderboards, scoring, … (in the same way as measurement and metrics are discredited)
  • Gamification can’t be used for motivation
  • Business simulation != gamification
  • Before building a game think if you would like it by yourself
  • It seems to be obvious that gamification could be used to engage everyone, but not sure
  • it’s seems that gamification is an interesting area to study. this can lead to interesting experiments
