Games are behaviours used in a bid to feel better by making someone else feel worse. Recognising a game and not playing it prevents the doctor from being manipulated into accepting responsibility for the results of the patient's own behaviour.

In the game 'Poor Me - Yes, But' the patient presents a problem but always has reasons why proffered solutions are not acceptable. Thus the doctor is proved useless, the point of the game. Some games are deadly as some people will even commit suicide to hurt and 'win'.
