Creativity comes from something else. Tan said, “Out of Nothing Come Something,” but I disagree. I believe that any creative idea comes from something else. That something else could be an image you pass on the street, a phrase you heard, or drawing a doodle. An event happens to spark an idea, and all great ideas started somewhere. Many may draw on their life experiences as a whole to write stories, and some may use small parts of themselves to create an entirely new world.
Everything said by Lazzaro in the “Why We Play Games Study” is completely true. People play video games for a wide variety of reasons. Video games are like books or television; they can take you to different worlds. The study may have left out one more important key to why people play games. I believe that the creativity involved in games is a large aspect in why people play. There are many sandbox games, like Minecraft, in which players are able to shape the environment around them. These games provide little to no story, but can allow players to do whatever they want in a world that is completely their own. These games can provide a completely relaxing experience where the player can build, explore, and more. These types of games could fit under the altered states key, but I believe creativity would be a key of its own. Playing a game purely to unleash your creativity is very different from playing a game to clear your mind.
