Tendances Les principales tendances observées ces dernières années, et qui devraient selon toute vraisemblance se poursuivre, sont le développement des plateformes sociales et mobiles. Les jeux sociaux représentent ainsi 13% du marché du jeu vidéo (et 36% du jeu en ligne), et leur chiffre d’affaires devrait doubler d’ici 2016 (de 5,4 milliards à 10,7 milliards d’euros). De même, d’ici 2016, les jeux sociaux devraient représenter 18% du marché du jeu vidéo et 46% du jeu en ligne.

Autres tendances : - 70% des foyers sont équipés d’ordinateurs et 84% d’un téléphone mobile - 59% des joueurs jouent sur PC et consoles, et 84% d’entres eux souhaiteraient pouvoir accéder à leurs jeux sur plusieurs plateformes Les succès Français de 2013 :

The Gamification of Learning and Instruction: Game-based Methods and ... - Karl M. Kapp Personality And Play Styles: A Unified Model Personality And Play Styles: A Unified Model By Bart Stewart [In this comprehensive analysis, multiple psychological systems of gameplay are surveyed, to try and arrive at a unified model in which player behavior can be understood and, crucially for game developers, catered to.] Numerous models of gamer psychology have been proposed and debated over the past couple of decades. In fact, several of the best-known play style and game design models share many conceptual elements.

Gamification About the Course Gamification is the application of digital game design techniques to non-game contexts, such as business, education, and social impact challenges. Video games are the dominant entertainment form of modern times because they powerfully motivate behavior. Game mechanics can be applied outside the immersive environments of games themselves, to create engaging experiences as well as assign rewards and recognition. Over the past few years, gamification adoption has skyrocketed. Game thinking means more than dropping in badges and leaderboards to make an activity fun or addicting.

Hours pass and you suddenly become aware that you're making ridiculous faces and moving like a contortionist while trying to reach that new high score. You ask yourself: Where did the time go? Maybe you didn't sprain your ankle, but if you consider yourself a gamer, you've probably ended up in similar situations.

In the 1970s a psychologist named Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi experimentally evaluated Flow. While in these states, people experience:
