  Leisure and antileisure in game play
Title: Leisure and antileisure in game play
Author: Chick, Garry
Roberts, John M.
Appeared in: Leisure sciences
Paging: Volume 11 (1989) nr. 2 pages 73-84
Year: 1989
Contents: Leisure is often described as being intrinsically motivated and offering the element of choice. Although games are normally considered recreational or leisure activities, there are certain circumstances in which they take on qualities that are not only nonleisurelike (i.e., lacking in intrinsic motivation and choice) but are actually destructive to the leisure experience. It is suggested that certain aspects of game-playing situations can destroy the leisurelike qualities of participation and result in abandonment of the activity. These aspects, which include social pressures to participate and conflicts that develop in the social and psychological environment of play, appear to erode intrinsic motivation and perceived freedom of choice.
