Comment Are you kidding? (Score 1) 214

Under 30. Current place of employment has decent insurance, lots of PTO, 6% matching 401k, and a pension. 3 promotions in 7 years and I plan to be here for as long as I can manage it.

Gamification is about taking a beneficial activity or habit and building a game around it to force a reward cycle, not the opposite as described above. Building an entertainment game and then trying to wedge in real world influences that cost money is called "Pay to Win" and they are inherently less fun than stabbing one's self with a sharp stick.
