[GUEST POST] Gamification Doesn't Need Game Designers
My feelings have since changed on the subject, but imagine my surprise when I became involved in the startup world and recognized the same snobbish disdain from game designers toward the new field of gamification. Popular designers blogged about the superficiality of gamification, as if ZombiU were Hamlet. And not only game designers, but gamification companies and consultants bought into this theory as well and displayed a surprisingly over-sensitive defensiveness for a field that had rigorous research to justify its ambitions.
