Designing a Data Visualization Dashboard Like It was a Game
"Here, I’ll focus in on specific attributes of charts and analytical applications that, if viewed as game elements, could enable new approaches for how to design, navigate and manipulate analytical applications such as data dashboards. Some of the mechanics I think are most adaptable from the discourse of games into the discourse of data visualization are: maps, items, crafting and guild halls."

What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Data Visualization
"Games can provide a useful metaphor for how to deal with some of the challenges of making effective data visualization products. But to understand how game concepts can improve data visualization, we need to better understand the structure of games and identify those kinds of games which most relate to the exploratory data visualization experience."

Standard Patterns in Choice-Based Games
"When I was analysing the structures of CYOA works a few years back, I began to recognise some strong recurring design patterns. I came up with some home-brewed terminology, but didn't ever lay it out in a nice clear way. This is a non-exhaustive look at some of the more common approaches"

However, I challenge someone to tell me that they would have believed most of…
