Aphra K

as far as I can remember Caillois suggested that play and games can be placed along an axis whereby some games tend more towards ludus and some more towards paidia – the former is more rule governed and goal directed and the later more unstructured and open.

I guess Facade and maybe the SIMS would be more towards the paidia end of the spectrum..much more open ended and player directed…
