Defining Games
a system of rules in
         which agents
         compete by making
         ambiguous
         decisions.

interactive systems
simulations don't have to be fun

competition isn't important

examples: flight simulators, sim city
contests
measure of ability, not necessarily about
meaningful decisions

examples: guitar hero, weightlifting
puzzles
there is a solution

if everyone can figure out the solution,
that's a good thing

decisions are irrelevant to the final
outcome

examples: crosswords, jigsaw puzzles,
math problems
