Using games to make advertising (ad-games) or to educate (serious games) indicates the transformation of an autotelic activity into a goal-oriented one, formally the same move of the rhetorical uses of morals.
That apocalyptic view, shared by certain critics, has the merit of showing the necessity of analyzing in a non-nave way the non-nave phenomenon of gamification.
Nevertheless, I know that gamified activities cannot be judged, like rhetoric, by an ethic point of view, but I claim that they can be judged by an aesthetic point of view: the loss of autotelic games implies the loss of freedom and beauty. For decades free gaming has been the paradigm of Scandinavian kindergartens and therefore a globally pedagogical model.
But today, because of the model of gamification, the educative goal-oriented game is overwhelming.

Autodesk unveils Maya Monday, July 25th, Posted by Jim Thacker Autodesk has unveiled Maya , the latest update to its 3D modelling and animation software, adding a new Time Editor for editing animations, and updates to the Bifrost and XGen simulation toolsets. The release also marks a turning point in rendering policy, with the licence of mental ray previously bundled with the software jettisoned in favour of Arnold, which Autodesk acquired earlier this year. The new features have been announced to coincide with Siggraph Unlike the existing Trax editor, any attribute that can be keyframed within Maya can be brought into the Time Editor as a clip — including cameras and texture properties as well as characters.
