Watch This Video Explaining Why Humans Love Games
The easiest reason for why human beings play games might be to kill time, but the truth is actually a whole lot more complicated than that. We join leagues and compete against one another in order to bond, earn rewards, simplify life and even develop our brains. Thereís something about the clear cut nature of poker or Clue or hockey thatís refreshing when compared against the ambiguity of life, and thereí something about the satisfaction of winning that improves our moods and helps us find happiness.
At least thatís what V Sauce thinks, and after explaining things like why we have two nostrils, why we donít really know what other people are seeing and why we use less of our brains for certain activities, Iíve learned to value his opinion pretty highly. Heís like the Internetís answer to the Mythbuster dudes. Plus, everything he says makes complete logical sense. Now and again, heíll pose a question that sounds absurd (like why donít we taxidermy human beings), but thereís always a whole lot of logic to it once you sit down and watch the video.
He doesnít cover it in this video, but I would be willing to bet a solid amount of money that V Sauce is a complete whiz at Monopoly.
