What it means to play with purpose

Playing with purpose is our way of approaching gaming as a meaningful activity, not a waste of time. Am I playing this game to bond with a friend? Learn a new skill? Challenge my abilities? These are great reasons to play! Am I playing to avoid doing work around the house? Procrastinate instead of finishing a project? Escape my real life problems? These are terrible reasons to play! If we play the right games for the right reasons, gaming transforms for a mindless hobby into an awesome boost of cognitive, social, and emotional benefits!
