Exploring the Potential of Play
Since earliest recorded history, people of all ages and cultures have engaged in creative play. From the Olympics of ancient Greece to today’s massively multi-player online games, human beings have consistently turned to play as a means of connecting with one another and the world around them. Through play, we encounter challenges with delight, we brave overwhelming odds with hope, and we conquer our world with imagination. Play, as expressed in games, is the most positive response of the human spirit to a universe of uncertainty.
