KATA - A form of training within Japanese martial arts, described the thought-process of gamification adequately: Supporting a desire for advancement through the repetition of a certain chain of action. Usually the advancement to the next stage or state can take several weeks, even months. In these situations, the importance of intermediary goals and rewards is stressed. The journey is often more important than the destination.
Gamification has commonly been used in practising cohesive teamwork, for example. In this case, so called simulations are used, in which participants need to work together in order to achieve a common in-game goal. Simulation games usually last for about a day, including introductory instructions and debriefing. Simulation games are ingenious tools for learning.
As an example of sports applications, certain console games allow movement through the use of the player's own body or through the use of a special controller. Nike+ and Heiaheia have taken advantage of gamification within their own services.
