Gamification – Game And Play

What are differences of game and play?

Play is doing whatever you want, with some structure and in an environment.

But games!

  • A game is a closed, formal, system that engages players in a structured conflict and resolves in unequal outcome.
  • A game is a series of meaningful choices.
  • A game has some outcomes!
  • A game is a problem-solving activity, approched with a playful attitude.
  • It is volunteering.
  • A game is about learning or problem solving.
  • A game has a balance between structure and exploration.

One important thing is not to get confused by games and video games and gamification!
