Totally agree. Recently read Finite and Infinite Games[1] and The Grasshopper: Life, Games, and Utopia[2] and I'm more or less convinced motivations are always essentially games.



If you find this interesting, then you would probably enjoy reading "Finite and Infinite Games"

I've found 'Finite and Infinite Games' by James Carse to be amazing thorough and enriching book along these lines.

This is probabley a bit off topic, but for me, the James Carse book, "Finite and Infinite Games" is the last word on all games!

The book which this article is based on is Finite and Infinite Games by James Carse.

For some reason, the article mentions the author but does not explicitly mention the title of the book.

There is a book called "Finite and Infinite Games" that you should read.

It's really metaphor for life.
