Day 120 - So why do we play? - Required 330000, Achieved 327937

And this is the question I need to ask of everyone, my essay of an answer tomorrow, but it's why does everyone play the games they play, and I'm not just referring to tabletop RPG's but boardgames, computer games, hell, even those things by waddington made in a time when games didn't have to be fun...

Do we do it for the interaction, the contact, the adventure, the exploration?
Is it for the achievements on the profile?
Is it because we want to be more than we are?
Is it because we just don't want to be us....?

This is the question.

My answer tomorrow

This is John Dodd on the Sunless Sea and goodnight England, wherever you are...
