In brief: Depends on person

Most video games are challenging by nature.
Many people face challenges with a sense of carefree fun. Others set unrealistically high standards for themselves, or attach too much importance to winning. Frustration and stress can result from self-criticism and from losing sight of the "big picture". After all, they are only games.
