Mihály Csíkszentmihályi

Flow, also known as Zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by complete absorption in what one does.  Mihály Csíkszentmihályi chart shows how it works on an axis.
Thinking about the 1987 NES Mega Man game where does it fall on the flow chart for you and why? After examining Mega Man think about three other games that would fall into completely different categories and why.
