Gamification, based on the word 'game', is a design technique to create a user experience of a product or service by using game elements in non-game environments. Today, everyone is quite familiar with the idea of gamification, even the users who are not yet aware of it. Just think about getting daily motivation messages from an application or earning badges for your orders. These are some of gamified parts of the user experience.
For further understanding of gamification, here is an informative video of Yu-kai Chou.
