From Chore Gamification Apps to Purposely Lackluster Video Games

Sometimes if you’re just looking to pass the time, even boring games will do. Right now, the gaming industry is really starting to push the boundaries of technology like augmented reality and simulators like Oculus Rift, however, these games have absolutely no cool car chases or epic battles that will keep you on the edge of your seat — quite the opposite in fact.

Part of what makes gaming so popular is that it allows people to immerse themselves in a whole other world, often where they’re a hero on some awesome quest to save the world. But a ton of purposely lackluster games are popping up, simulating the less-than-fun parts of life. This is pretty much spelled out in the title of 'Waiting in Line 3D,' which serves as a spoiler for the only thing players can expect to be doing in that game.
