A core value proposition of Nintendo’s DS and Wii game consoles comes from the fun of exploring physical movement such as swinging a tennis racquet in Wii Sports (Nintendo, 2006). The creation of Mii avatars that look like a friend or a famous iconic figure on the Wii provides a creative kick. The fact that cars in Project Gotham Racing handle differently than real cars makes them more fun to drive. Games can build Easy Fun through the use of specific mechanics.

Furthermore, careful observation revealed small facial movements (which Ekman calls micro expressions), that could be seen while players were doing what they enjoyed the most during play.
