Redundant, too predictable, logical, unchallenging, unengaging work - > no motivation to work -> compromise by getting pleasure from an internal part of your brain interacting with the virtual world in order to invest time and gain something in the virtual world -> others see it as something with value -> play with friends -> more enjoyable experience/can contact them -> playing to compromise a dull or boring part of your life -> to dominate the virtual word (level, have most gold, armour, explore the most, kill and pvp the most, best titles, best equipment, most influence one everyone, have alot of friends, maniupalate them) ie : power -> over primary life (hard to get everything) -> immersify inside a fantansy with much in-game consequences as possible
