I read an article recently where a sample of teenagers were asked to play games and one of the several questions that were asked was, what do you expect to get out of a game.
And answers given were, in ascending order:
– Play for Excitement
– Expect to Win Easily
– Pay to Win
– Play for Pleasure
– Expect a Challenge
When asked why do you play games, 50% of the girls and 25% of the boys said, “Because I’m bored” (with 30% of those being ‘bord’, ‘board’ or ‘boerd’ :( )
Is this a typical representation??

I play (multiplayer) games because it provides me an oppportunity to try and tactically out-think another person in an artificial world which has an established set of rules that I can use to lead me to victory.
I play single player games (and only very rarely) because I enjoy the story that unfolds as I play them.
