    Yes. It's genuine. I think I stopped hoping for mankind once Visual Studio and SAP got achievements.

    It's not taken off in the UK, yet. Is it growing prevalent in the US? I've read that studies have been made of Farmville and the like, hoping to increase productivity with high-scores.

    Sounds like something a modern Nazi would come up with.

    @ZuluHero Why are you winking at him. Do you wish him to think of you next time he is holding his johnson.

    In regards to boo's game for making eye contact when walking along. If see someone on a collsion course with me on their phone, I like to shout and jump towards them as they reach the point of impact. +10 points if they drop their phone.

    It has taken off in the UK. I experienced it myself once, and have a few mates with similar experiences. They're the new form of "team building exercises" where you had to make chairs out of straws and all sorts of shit, only they're constant and are in danger of becoming a genuine performance measure.

    "Hey, Jim, we know you put in some overtime last month to finish off the project on time, but we're giving the promotion to Dave."
    "Why?"
    "He has more achievements than you. If you rode your bike to work every day for a week or made more than three tea-runs in a single day then it would help for the next review."
    "Fuck off."

    Gamification from middle management is pretty much inevitably going to be arse, but that shouldn't stop anyone from playing Bullshit Bingo.

    The eye contact thing really does work (93.6 % of the time). I went on a pain management course years back and one of the things they taught, given some of the people there were disabled and/or generally on the back foot in life, was assertive walking.
    It's amazing how, if you walk with your head up and systematically catch people's eyes as they come toward you, they feel compelled to move aside. If it's a group of lads, say, just neutrally catch their gaze and hold it for half a second and then move on through them... nine times out of ten they magically part*. It must be reptile-brain level shit.

    * Might not work in Glasgow.

    Obviously doesn't work for people walking with their head down looking at their phone, but I'm pretty sure it's legal to just push them into oncoming traffic.

    The 1 out of 10 people are obviously other gamers and should be given a quick nod of appreciation.

    I'd happily wash your hands as many times as necessary.
