My 10-year old grandson plays a video game that has some monsters in it. However, he never sees the monsters because he knows how to avoid them.
When I visited his family recently, I watched him play his game. I commented, "The game seems rather boring. All you are doing is walking around, gathering tools and weapons, and building tall towers of bricks."
He said, "Grandma, these towers help me escape the monsters." "But," I answered, "You never see a monster."
"Right," he said. "I don't like to deal with monsters. They could kill me."
