Abstract

Playing games is fun. Being visible to others and knowing about others in social media is fun. Obviously, other factors are involved. We want to play games to escape from daily life, and we want to play games in order to satisfy our needs to compete and win, with other words, to prove ourselves in game situations where we are confronted with challenges that we think we can master. There are video games where a single player has to deal with the game challenges. There are games where individual players compete with each other, there are multiplayer games where multiple gamers can act in teams and compete and collaborate. Playing these games is fun. Can humor contribute to fun in video games?
