    Great idea. Another thing about games is that they make real use of the spatial metaphor. People are good at just two things: space and language. The more like real space or real language an environment is, the better we are at working with it.
    Still, games contain an element of frustration. You have to make sure the goal you present the user with is the same as their real goal.
