Gaming Principles: Introduction

Posted by gamephilosopher on September 1, 2006

The Gaming Principles series has the goal of identifying what makes something a game and why a person enjoys playing it. Without identifying what a game really is, it’s very hard to objectively say what’s so great about a game or why one game succeeded where another failed. Since games are about personal entertainment, it’s very easy to say that a game is crap because you don’t like it, but to discuss the game or write a review about it requires a much deeper understanding.
