I've always been infuriated this was called a "game".

Why, exactly?

I find the complaint odd.

Conway's Game of Life is a game. Chutes & Ladders is a game. Figure Skating is a game. Rollercoaster Tycoon is a game. The Sims is a game. Chess is a good game.

I feel you cog. I vaguely remember excitedly loading up Conways 'game' of life .exe on DOS as a kid only to be sorely disappointed.

Tho, to be fair, the moniker "game" was applied to Conway's creation more as a joke than a matter of definition. But I nonetheless can't come up with a definition of "game" that excludes something like CGL without feeling shamefully ad-hoc.

@exy I think the broad term for these is 'cellular automata' I once used random noise + X generations of a different ruleset to generate cave like structures in a procedurally generated roguelike (for my final project in college)

That's true, Purple Cat! (And map generation is the most fun programming task in the universe.) I'm willing to call cellular automata games.

When you're 8 years old and you see a floppy marked "GAME OF LIFE" you think it's going to be the fucking board game.

And yet thank goodness it wasn't!
