Additionally, Kim Taek Jin expressed that game developers had to keep in mind that their games should be a kind of enjoyment for gamers' eyes and ears and able to make even the newbies enjoy the gaming fun. According to him, the most important thing is that all game developers have to clearly know the concept of "mirror neuron". The neuron "mirrors" the behavior of the other, as though the observer were itself acting. For example, if you see your favorite football team score a goal, your mirror neurons fire in your brain and make you feel as if you scored.
