True, but even a playable game is a long way beyond a first-day
programmer. (By "playable" I mean something that someone other than
its author would play and enjoy.) It's fine as a goal, but needs to be
viewed with a perspective of "that's where I'm trying to get to", not
"now I'm going to start writing games".
