Extra Credits: Beyond Fun

The Extra Credits crew talks about how some games are far less "fun" than others, and that's OK. In fact, that's great. Not every movie is fun, not every book is fun, and if every game was purely about fun, the medium would suffer greatly. The show is targeted at gamers as well as publishers and developers.

i like there message and before anyone writes a long paragraph that no one will reads fun and engaging are not the same thing.

I think one of the user comments on the video said it perfectly; the definition of "fun" being used here is very simple. Extra Credits are viewing fun simply as cheap thrills, which is not something I agree with.

To me, "fun" means anything that is enjoyable. When I'm being told an engaging story or looking at an interesting image, I consider myself to be having fun simply because I'm enjoying what I'm experiencing. I had just as much fun watching Chinatown as I did watching The Avengers.
