Playing keeps us sane in an insane world. What if you never laughed or smiled? Have you seen someone like that. We all have issues, but laughter keeps us all from losing it completely. I don't know who it was that said laughter is the best medicine but he must have been genius. Think about how good you feel after a day or night of hysterical laughter. Like a workout for your soul, you feel some how lighter and happier.
That's why games, I've decided that even though making something for people to play is work, that my work should most definitely be playing.
