How do you like your life/video games? There isn’t a wrong answer.
Would you rather your video games all be Level One easy: you can run through, button mash, survive the level?
Or would you rather be Level 30 mage: with collected tools, superpowers, knowledge, & skills to find the treasures, surpass the challenges, win the game?
(It’s not a dichotomy, just contrast on the spectrum.)
Be where you choose; end up where you chose.
