    What Makes A Game?

    Good evening. (Do me a favor and pretend that was said like Count Dracula would. It just does it a comedic justice.)

    So, the idea for this post stemmed from a conversation Gurglor, Jeremias and I have been having on this thread. We’ve all been discussing what aspects of games and¬†gameplay¬†that are really important, both in psychological contexts and, um, normal ones. I thought it would be interesting to bump up the conversation to it’s own post so that we could start a larger discussion on the subject.

    So, what layer of playing games is most important to you? What do you want to explore? Why do we play?

      Well, this was pushed under the bus, huh? I’ll have to wait until posts quiet down a bit.
