Extra Credits: The Skinner Box

Watched this:

Best explanation of Skinner’s research that I’ve seen. “Almost anything with points uses this system.” Heck even solitare uses these concepts.

Instead of focusing on Skinner technicques to get people to play your games try these alternative things to keep your game fun:

  1. Mystery
  2. Mastery
  3. Mental Challenge
  4. Narrative
  5. Novelty
  6. Flow

“Just because you can make your came compelling doesn’t mean that it’s a good game.”
