Video games for pleasure or video games for a greater purpose

I think its great that people use video games to relax, as an escape, as something fun. However, I think it’s a bit problematic if the only video games you are playing doesn’t have a more meaningful lesson within it. i think its very similar to reading books, you want to read books that you enjoy and have strong story lines, but also have something else in them that make them worth while, that teach you something. I think it should be the same for video games, video games are great platforms to incorporate enjoyment but also talk about identity politics, political issues, etc.
