In general, we like what looks/sounds/tastes familiar. Familiarity is nice.

Sadly, you never met Safiye.

She'd turn anything, anything into a game.

She would play against a five-year-old kid, take them to the cleaners, play against a much older man and take all their cash too.

She just loved playing games.

Her daughter comment on the video, which make it even more beautiful.
