You Think this is a Game?

Maybe it's me. Maybe I just don't get it. I think that a game is something that you play and have fun with etc. What is the story with all of these online "games" where they throw up a few nice pictures make you do some paperwork, and then force you to stop playing (sometimes for hours or a day) and expect you to come back and fill out some more paperwork? Where is the fun?

I honestly don't get it. Are there people who actually play these games? The mode for most of them is some sort of scenario. You're a samurai; you're a gangster; you're a knight, whatever. You have to go through some sort of training or some such annoyance. Click this or that. Make some move and then a few clicks into it you're knocked out of the game. "Sorry it will take 5 hours to complete your training". 5 hours? 5 real, earth spinning on its axis hours? Are you out of your mind? This is a game right? I don't get it.
