Our brains have a tendency to gloss over the minute-to-minute action in video games, leaving us with a few minutes of distinct memories after hours of gameplay. Unlike with books or movies, we have been trained to turn our brains off or "veg out" during our game time, causing us to miss out on the full range of experience games have to offer. We can change this by making a conscious effort to focus on our games, especially when they bring more complex narratives or themes to the table.

Oh, and our friend Mike from Idea Channel drops in for a few words on the subject! Make sure you watch Mike's episode on this topic: http://bit.ly/1sK0JVs
