That said, the analogy you just made has absolutely nothing to do with the kind of outlook I'd started this thread with. The kind of person I talked about with my first observation is the antithesis of you. They do not want to have a profound experience or be transformed; they simply want their time to matter toward something tangible other than the moment itself.

That's the point. What they are asking for is paradoxical. "Mattering toward something tangible other than the moment itself" in the context of video games precludes something that actually matters. The 'tangible' thing has no inherent meaning, while chasing it devalues the thing that actually does have inherent meaning. The moment itself is the thing that actually matters!

The way I see it.
