  1. had to share this on my site. Thank you!

  2. Yes, I agree simulations can be seen as a different category than games. Some simulations don’t have a defined game-like goal or challenge. I think these are clearly different from a game.

    However, when simulations also have a clear goal or (unnecessary) challenge, I think they are in the intersection, i.e., these would be both a game and a simulation.

    • That’s the issue I have had with simplifying the categorisations! In simple terms, they are very hard to distinguish from serious games! That’s the reason I didn’t split them originally.
