Unique To Video Games, But For Home Much Longer?
As a former Director of Ecommerce, stealing any 3 of these ideas currently unique to video games would be worth millions:

Immersion

Engagement

Sense of presence

Interactivity
Shaping The Experience
Customizability


Progress Blockers
Mastery
Replayability

You might think these last three would never apply to ecom, and you would be wrong. Sometimes ecommerce uses progress blockers to filer out the conversion lowering MOOKS (lol).


Mastery - a sense of understanding a "world" so well you are KING or QUEEN of it is always a good idea.

Replayability is the hardest of the three since ecommerce shouldn't suddenly change, but it can add things IN such as Easter Eggs or Amazon's famous gold box. Ecom can also use TIME as the reset button as Amazon does with their Gold Box.


I've yet to find an article about video games that is not spot on to my 7 years and over $30M in online sales as a Director of Ecommerce. The Internet marketing team that figures out how to use video game-like techniques, ideas and strategies makes the next $30M.

Cool article that is pretty far afield from my core expertise, but my inclination after reading it is to say YES. I'm waiting for the game company I can white label and use inside MY (or our) content.

Problem with that idea is white labeling the same game over and over has no value, so the game itself would need to be created in blocks that were customizable so each iteration of the game felt different and unique.

Watch as Hilda plays and talks about how 40 years of playing video games (and playing with her 94-year-old aunt) have helped keep her mentally active.
