I remember from my earliest days, there was a popular video arcade game which had as its goal the procurement of a decent suit for a job interview. You never got to the actual job interview, you just selected smart, sensible outfits and laid the clothes out on the bed, mixing and matching vests and pin stripes and shoes. No score was kept. Every twenty minutes the game went into automatic pause and requested the player take a mandatory 15 minute break where you were discouraged from thinking about anything.

Those days are gone, never to return.
