  1. been reading on gamification in the hype cycle for a presentation and found out that gamification did not disappear but actually Gartner moved it from the technology hype cycle to the digital marketing hype cycle, where it stands in the lowest part of the through of desilusionement. not sure about Gartner’s validity in stating it, but still, it’s worth something 🙂

  2. SuzieSuzie says:

    Game design elements that form the basis of gamification have psychological influences that we, as social human beings, simply can’t avoid.

    Leaderboards and point systems may be applied out if context and in many cases prove to be useless but when compared to other people’s point totals it envokes benign envy that leaves people with desire to prove that they can be better than their peers. This tends to increase the popularity of apps using point systems.

    Gamification isn’t just a fad, it will stick around no mater what Gartner Hype Cycle says.
