The Beauty of Play

We have one game (Dance Dance Revolution) and two kinds of players. The one that believes in the beauty of play, and the other one who believes in the beauty of winning.


It’s fascinating to discover how a simple game can express the classical dicotomy between culture and business, between heart and mind. One seeks the pure joy and pleasure of play. The other one seeks the joy of achieving an unconquerable result.

But fuck results is what I say. Winning is quite a capitalist metaphor where you never care on the “how to” of things and in consequence you start being governed by results and turn to be a shallow void person. Pure play, instead, is something beautiful to see. In life everything is uncertain, you never know what comes next, but if at least you enjoy the beauty of just playing: then you own a rich soul.
