How to See (and Enjoy) Life as a Game

The gamification of life is really nothing new — and game theory is applicable to any type of social interaction (which proves that it’s a descriptive, not a prescriptive “science”)— but where it fails is in drawing the line between where the games stop and where true, non-game life begins.

One can’t decide “I don’t really care about my family after all… it’s just a game, really”. It’s all nice and dandy if you pack it up and make it look life-advicey, but the idea itself is flawed on a considerable number of levels. It’s like deciding that no banknote really matters, since they’re all just bits of paper, after all.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
