Kombo: People play videogames for different reasons. Some people play to relax; others play for the competition. Sometimes you want a quick thrill, and other times you just want to mellow out for an evening of thoughtful exploration.
My moods go all over the place. A couple of nights ago I was finally getting around to finishing the campaign in Modern Warfare 2 (I'm so slow), and I was on an adrenaline high. After giving General Shepherd a lobotomy, I threw myself right into a thirty minute session of Pac-Man Championship Edition and was killing my friend's high scores.
