Why I play

For me, games are learning tools. A good game will force me to think in new ways.

When I play, it is a collaborative effort. Even if the game is competitive, even if in the game we are working against each other, our reason for playing the game is to help each other learn. The competition is an illusion.

  1. Well said. The games I enjoy the most definitely remain enjoyable because of the new thought processes they generate. I still enjoy the occasional game that relies more on narrative, but intriguing mechanics or gamestates are preferable.
