Most people enjoy playing games because they have fun. There are many different kinds of games, people usually choose the one that they are interested in and participate in the games during their leisure time. In my opinion, playing games are not only for fun, but also teaches us about life.
Firstly, games always have some rules and regulations that the players should follow. We should follow the games rules and compromise with the other players in order to play the game fairly and happily. Similar to our lives, we should have good discipline and self-control to obey the rules set by the government in the society. Therefore, the living of people will be arranged in a good order. For example, when we drive a car in the road, we should follow the road safety rules and the instruction of the traffic lights. Otherwise, many traffic accidents may happen.
Secondly, most games usually have one winner in the end, all the rest players will be losers. There is a famous Chinese proverb called “Failure is the mother of Success” , so we can gain the experiences of failure and do evaluation in order to make improvement. By the way, the process of playing games is much more important than the result of the game. During the game, we learn to cooperate with our team mates and develop the team spirit. Similar to our lives, sometimes we may face failure like playing games. We should be brave to tackle the problems and try our best to improve the situation. We should be positive and diligent because I believe that we will not be the losers all the time.
Finally, I do think that playing games definitely bring us fun and happiness. Besides, playing games also teaches us about life, such as we should follow the rules and we should be tough enough to face the failure.
