Richard Seymour: How beauty feels. Maslow’s Needs and Gaming. What does it mean to achieve something?

Maslow’s Needs and Gaming

Is it good enough to feel like you achieve, when you really don’t? Does the modern world provide a false sense of achievement too often, to the point at which people don’t actually do anything? Image generated using this neat tool. It is hard not to notice the impact of computers and video games on the overall productivity of oneself. For me, being a little bit obsessive, features highlighted by the above are just the type of thing to deter me from being more productive. Let us start outside the realm of massively online multiplayer games. Hello, my name is Will, and I’m addicted to achievements. I too have felt this way, and I have felt even more frustrated when the game developers put achievements in games on purpose, which require an excessive amount of time to complete; leaving obsessive people such as myself spending far too much time playing. Consoles and silly achievements/trophies are just the tip of the iceberg. Safety Love/Belonging Esteem.
