Games are great inspiration for players to go on and make their own ways to play or puzzles to solve. The worlds and spaces players encounter in video games are unlike the real world, because they have been made to help them on their way.
Video games are made spaces. Spending time in them inevitably leads to the understanding that if this space has been created, maybe I could create something like this of my own.
This can be a design to make your own video game, and there are lots of simple ways to get started with this. But also, games inspire players to make other things with all sorts of purposes and for all sorts of reasons.
