A new study confirms something that I have suspected since a very long time: the thing that makes videos games fun and attractive is the sense of achievement, not the violence.
Mind it. Video games are not a waste of time.
Let me give you a definition: Games are sets of restrictive rules, designed to create an artificial challenge that requires specific application of skill to surmount.
Here’s the list of the most attractive and expensive games ever:
