Abstract: By adapting Brunswik's lens model and the mechanics, dynamics, and aesthetics (MDA) framework, this study empirically investigated how perceptions of the game features (mechanics), influence game-challenge reactions (dynamics) and playfulness (aesthetics); these influences affected service experience evaluation. The findings revealed that locatability, navigability, and controllability exert positive effects on game-challenge reactions, whereas navigability and nostalgia had positive effects on feelings of playfulness. Furthermore, the relationship between game-challenge reactions and playfulness was determined to be nonrecursive, and both of these factors positively influenced service experience evaluation.
