More from Game Addiction: The Experience and the Effects

(Online) games are similar to reality in that they are consistent and always on. They also offer a sense of chance.

Games “approach the texture of everyday life” and are real because they have real people in them.

Good quote: “Once we take games online, what happens isn’t going to be simply good or bad. It’s going to be human.”

So far I’m definitely glad I purchased this book in that so far it’s taking an objective approach to explaining why games are the way they are. For example, it even discusses multitasking for a bit…. which is actually your brain switching back and forth between tasks.
