Does gamification reflect how people really behave?

I am a newbie to the debate on gamification, so apologies if this is an old hat topic. I'm wondering if as the level of gamification increases on a study, you run the risk of getting different results as people start playing roles. Usually when I play a (video) game, I take more risks than I normally would, am more inquisitive, more willing to deviate from the norm. So would a game where I wasn't investing real time ...more »

Boosting the "Experience Phase" in MR

Fun versus length of the survey game

Will the benefits of the "fun" component outweigh the longer time it takes to conduct the survey or "game"?

Does fun equal greater completion or actually create greater fatigue and dropoff?
