Not all games are the same. Some games are action games, role play games, sport games, and more that are all played for your entertainment. Others seem to be designed to help you learn. These games help children and adults of all age learn lessons about life or help expand their minds. While some are played simply for letting time pass and enjoy your favorite games. Whatever game it is, the goals are always the same: Have a strategy to win and enjoy. Games help me enjoy my time because it lets me unwind and forget the "real" world. Also, I get to be in "control" of the fantasy world and I can control what happens.
Not all games are the are the same. Some are board games, played when one is bored. Others seem to be designed to give you a challenge. Game-makers want to make you think, they are trying to get your mind to to really think about what you are doing while you are playing the game. While some are played simply for fun, just to have a good time with your friends, family, etc. Whatever game it is, the goals are always the same: To get the highest points (or money), and to win. I personally enjoy playing games because it keeps my mind off of things and keeps me entertained. Games are great when you have nothing else to do and also games are played for enjoyment.
