    Here's a question that I've heard thrown around a lot recently, what is a game?

    The first thing that most people seem to be content doing is going on Dictionary.com and referencing the textbook definition, and although that's fine and all but I was wondering what you guys would consider a game, what a game is to you. (See what I did there...)I think that this article sums up what a game is quite well all things considered.

    www.msn.com/en-us/news/games/don%e2%80%99t-listen-to-those-who-try-to-own-the-definition-of-a-video-game/ar-AAg1bbK?ocid=spartandhp

    Any personal thoughts on this?

    My take on the definition of a video game is simple, if I can be part of the experience, it's a game, if it just allows me to spectate then I'm watching some sort of film or artsy media. And finally, if it's playable but sucks, then it's simply a shitty video game :)

    I think a game is a form of playable entertainment.
