Like I wrote in a previous post, I like the questing/interactive/achievement experience, so it's no wonder that I'm drawn to FourSquare and Nike+ (I don't watch enough television beyond children's shows to use GetGlue).

Does anyone else consider these games? I do! I find it quite fun, actually! :D

I don't consider them games, BUT they do have game elements.

Foursquare I use as a personal location journal. When I get a badge or a mayorship I am surprised and delighted :) But I don't play for badges and mayorships. I did this early on, and I found it boring. The perks at some places are pretty nice though. 8 more check ins to my favorite seafood place and I get a free T-shirt!

GetGlue - I use it as a personal entertainment journal (same usage as foursquare). I do like the idea of stickers, real life stickers. I requested mine but haven't gotten them yet...hmmm....

Nike+ --> use it to track my activity (but a recent update made it so that the darned thing crashes when I try to upload my stats to the server on my 3GS!!! >:( ). I find it REALLY motivating to beat my own best scores. The thing scared the heck out of me one day when I beat my own "best 5k" and some woman came on to congratulate me and encourage me on. I was not expecting that, but later on I thought that it was a nice touch.
