I have had moments in gaming history where I saw the dreaded GAME OVER! or YOU LOSE! and I was still very much satisfied in stead of frustrated - as long as the gaming experience up to the game over is a heck of a lot of fun, I don't mind losing all that much. Ah I know some Age of Empires 2 multiplayer sessions where I was actually having fun getting my arse kicked. It was just a highly enjoyable battle.
well said gimbal

theres got to be a challenge and we can`t be winners all the time or we never learn to do anything different
