"Everyone plays video games with a goal in mind. The goal is usually very simple: "Even though it's three in the morning and I have to wake up for school tomorrow, I just want to beat this stupid flash game before I go to sleep." Goals based around skill of video games usually don't aim higher than looking for a sense of accomplishment. So it's easy to determine when someone is too good at a video game: it's when they can no longer complete their goal because attaining it is not a challenge."
