Anti-Gamification

The trend towards the gamification of everything seems like taking the worst aspects of video games - competition and false achievement in addictive combinations - and applying it in coercive ways to get people to do things that they wouldn’t do.

What I actually want is the anti-gamification of video games - more games that are less like video games and don’t use those tricks.
