what is the concept of playing a game. its making the choices you believe our right that with help you win the game. life is a game we constantly make choices that we believe are right and with batter us in achieving what ever we are trying to achieve. for example I want to be a doctor i make choice to enroll in medical school to become a doctor. life is game in witch we make choices that will help us win the game or simply get to were we want to be.Report this Argument

Life is not a game. If life were a game, then every time one would fail a quiz or exam, they can just press a button and restart the quiz/exam. The actions we commit in our lives can never be changed. for instance if i were to go swimming with crocodiles and be eaten, i cant say, " its fine, i still got 3 lives. Ill just use one of those", because we only get one life opportunity in this world and once its taken, its the end. Life is not a game as there are no "do-overs" or "additional lives".

live is a game and no the one you play on ps4 but the one you play with friends and family. ones you lose a football game or super ball theirs no restart, theirs no posse or i have 3 more chances. the choice you made in that game led you either to win or lose. same in life the choice we make like go to collage or not effect if i will become a doctor or not. what do we do when we play football, you plane you make choices, you practice, you think etc, what do you do in life when you wont somethin

Life is not a game because if it was, we would remove the bad things in our lives and allow only the good things to occur to us.The choices we make does not directly affect outcomes. for instance in sports, if i were to have a great game and hit 2 home runs, it does not mean it will lead to a victory. Additionally, if i were to have a great GPA but be afraid of seeing blood, i cant become a doctor. Some of the choices we make does not lead to what we want as much as we have seen in our lives.

Life is not a game as some of the choices we make does not lead to what we want as much we have in our lives. for instance, as much as i want to pass a Calculus test with a 100, i know it can't happen because i have difficulties understanding it. From my own beliefs, i see everything in our lives has been decided and we can't change it. For instance, if i have an 11-inch sized foot, there is no way that i can change that, nor can i alter my 6'1 height. Our lives has been predetermined already.

who said you cant get a 100 anything is posible your hight is changeble with age and so id you feet. but not any of this is revalent to what am saying, look at bigger picture. first ask your selfe what is life and what is game . everyday we walk and think thinking is game we play with our thouths and find the purfict i dea. look at game in biger prospective its compitation its choises its wonting to always win or be on top its about proving something to yourself and the world then what is life ?

I understand your point I guess it depends on your beliefs but to my understanding I view life as a "game" as well. It seems as if man has created this "game" to distract us from the unknown. This "game" seems that it has been created to merely pass the time.
