#11 Games

We play games (not board, not video, but social) all the time.  Every time we greet someone, buy a gift, or do almost anything at all we're playing a game.  Call it what you want if you dislike the word 'game', but the point remains; we follow cultural patterns for various reasons.
Should we?  Should we always play games?  Or should we avoid them?  Is there a clear answer?
