Mapping nongames, Part 8 - Play and Games

Another good passage from Rules of Play:

"It turns out that play and games have a surprisingly complex relationship. Play is both larger and smaller term than "game", depending on the way it is framed."

That is why is hard to define if nongames are a subset of videogames or, for its playfullness, another kind of interactive entertainment. I would take the first option.
