Games People Play
Updated: 01/07/2021

Games: Definition/Description

By definition a non-recreational game is an artificially structured situation and exercise, designed to be fun or diversionary. In generally healthy societies such games are considered normal or appropriate for children, when the games are not engaged in by adults. A legitimate rationale for games is learning, preparation and practice, but "real life" is not a game.

Categories of Games

Games can be categorized as fun and playful, serious or diversionary, constructive or destructive. This article focuses primarily on  unproductive and/or destructive games

Constructive Games

One of the major dimensions to the human soul is the desire to have fun. Adults as well as children can construct games that are fun and rewarding. Especially in a romantic relationship games play a major part, and they will be specialized for the parties and their psychological makeup.

Destructive Games

Destructive "games" will be consciously or unconsciously designed out of resentment to denigrate, belittle or diminish the other party. Some "games" that women indulge in are emasculating and therefore misandrous. Some "games" that men indulge in are devaluing and misogynous.

Much of the time in marriages the relationship deteriorates into degrees of hidden power struggles. These are often so unconsciously artful or devious that neither partner is aware of this destructive game being "played", yet the resentment at least smolders if not bursting into flame..
