I can tell you why I love games: I tend to master them as a means of dealing with my anxieties, which is typical of type 5s. Xcalizorz is a VERY avid gamer, he plays so many different games, and commentates very well, he's often hilarious.
I'm quite sure he is type 5 too.
My brother is a 7, and he plays for enjoyment, and to avoid school, and to escape the baroness left behind by relationships.
This is why games feel the stigmatic sting from some people. Maybe they get a sense that it is merely an unhealthy retreat from life, and they are quite right. However, so is TV, so are movies, books, the media, even sports. How many people out there are binge drinking themselves into a mindless stupor and labeling them "GUD TIMES!!! WOOO!!!". It can't be that good if you have to numb your brain just to enjoy it.
You have a great blog man. I'd much prefer to finish the games before reading though, you spoiled RDR for me a little bit (it was obvious enough anyway).
edit: I might also recommend a game that you would enjoy greatly: Alan Wake.
