    I know this one is older one but you asked for comments. So I think I play games to experience powers of hero’s, skills of professionals of all types or just to enjoy great or different game mechanics. Some times if not provided with a story I’ll make up my own but mostly I love being powerful and experiencing things I’ll never be able to do.

    Games like factorio I Iove the mechanics of that game. Assassins creed games are fun to blend in and jump off roof tops to attack bad guys. Would love to hear more about motivations for playing games and maybe theologically why we want to based on these motivations.

    My short theory is that we can enjoy Gods creations and aspects in the power we wield and respect.

    Enjoy the podcasts!
