A fun and cool article that uses Kant's concepts of the sublime to explain the appeal to puzzle video games, and in particular the game "Lumines".

Awesome.

I have a friend working on his Phd in Computer Science who is researching the facebook video game application Farmville.

I think many interesting things happen in your brains while we engage electronic games.

It's like mountain climbing... but cheaper. Although I've actually learned some things from games. A game that allows you to play the exact same game over and over revealed to me how I tend to start playing it safe using certain rules that seemed right at the time. By playing the game over and over, I discovered there were points where my safety rules were lethal.
