Games are about limitations

“We forget that games are about limitations. Limitations are what really makes games. Take the game of chess -possibly the greatest game of all. You’re on this stupid board and you’ve got 64 squares, you can’t move off the board, and the pieces only move in certain, really horrible ways that are totally stifling to your creativity. Yet, here is this incredibly rich game.”
