On Not Playing iPhone Games

Stephen M. Hackett, in his explanation of why he doesn’t play games on his iPhone:

Good stuff. I keep the game selection on my iPhone limited to one folder, and even then, most of them don’t get played. I think games are good when some mindless activity is needed to help you decompress, but sitting and thinking in silence can be even more valuable.
