“Play is a core human value; even a core mammalian value.” Bing Gordon.
Dutch philosopher and historian Huizinga explores the relationship between games, play, and culture and he discusses the importance of the play element of culture and society. According to Huizinga play is primary to and a necessary condition of the generation of culture and it exists in every culture.
Again according to Huizinga “The five most common experiences of game feel are:
1- The aesthetic sensation of control “with the right relationships between input and response, controlling something in a game can archive a kind of lyric beauty.”
2- The pleasure of learning, practising and mastering a skill
3- Extension of the senses
4- Extension of identity
5- Interaction with a unique physical reality within the game”
When player is given well defined task that makes player experience the game as a narrative game creates an impression in the player’s mind.
