Playing games in church

"There are three basic human entertainment experiences that go back to the cave: storytelling, game-playing, and music. People are looking for a hybrid of those things."
Yair Landau, vice chairman of Sony Pictures, from Wired 12.05: The Shape of Things to Come

Okay...we (the Church) have done pretty well with the music and storytelling parts, but what about game playing? Not that we are in the entertainment business, but if game playing is a fundamental part of the human experience, why are we not providing it?
