Do you agree ??
IMO it is a bit too broad. Sometimes i play a game "brainless" (Quake 4) more or less like people that punch a boxing bag to help to cope with stress ...
I agree that, generally, a game is all about exploring different options, different views .... but it is not necessarily something that you want to be. We might want to explore new options to find out what you don't want to be.
Till next post.
