I had an epiphany today on the nature of my struggle with Game’s usefulness: It’s a crisis of faith versus works.
The writers of Game with a Christian background (currently or no) seem to follow this cleft, too. The closer a person skews to Roman Catholic, the more likely the person takes the approach of : Work the system–practice and ritual will get you there. But even Baptists get baptized.
The closer you are to Protestantism, the more Game seems to be about Frame; inner-Game. The idea that successful Game is the fruit of internalizing it. Still, Roman Catholics should read their Bible.
I’m a Protestant at heart, so that probably influences my view.
