What we experience varies specifically from game to game, but generally each game we play is the result of a great many efforts finding some form of cohesion, and being laid in our hands via a controller. So, now that we’ve knocked down two questions already—those being what it means to game and what we experience when we game—we’ve still got two more to confront: how do we choose which games to experience, and why do we choose to experience them at all?

Get a copy of Game Mode for the rest.
