[GUEST POST] Gamification is Hard
But I do know something about games. Growing up I straddled the nerd/jock dichotomy. Not many twelve year olds played football and Panzer Blitz. I’ve basically lived my life as a game, which is our motto at GameMaki. My best friend built a Heathkit computer and bought an Apple II, and over the years also we played hundreds of paper war games from vanished companies like SPI and Game Designers Workshop. I also played bumper pool in game rooms and capture the flag in camp, so there weren’t many games or sports I wasn’t familiar with.
