I've thought about this many times before, about why I try so hard on my games, always playing on hard, always seeking out what the reviewers say are the toughest challenges (Ninja Gaiden, Demon's Souls), but when it comes to RL problems, if it looks impossible, I don't try.Unfortunately, I came up with a reason that kind of says this theory has a flaw. In video games, we are GUARANTEED that if we finally do good enough, no matter how hard it is, we can win. We can come out on top. If a building is on fire in RL, there is no guarantee that you going in to save someone will not just result in both of you being killed. It's very VERY possible to have a no win situation in RL, whereas in gaming, you can win. You know this.
