The power of the will to live.

"The essence of the videogame is survival of the fittest. When playing a game, it's the versus just you and your survival instinct and that's the most powerful instinct a human being has. The will to live overrides everything.
So, in my opinion, the essence of a great videogame is to exploit that instinct, to really get the player's adrenaline going."
