As of recent I have becomne very interested in serious gaming. Today I ran into this little gem: visual studio achievements and it got me thinking.
I actually think it could be very helpfull and stimulating to add such a gaming component to an IDE to improve code quality and basically make it more interesting to write better code and put your IDE to good use.
Any thought on this?
Edit: Just to be clear here: the link contains a funny take on it. I'm interested in the entire notion of adding a gaming element to an ide, with for instance achievements that stimulate the use of best programming practises. Not so different from what StackOverflow is doing.
