Is it a game?

There's always a lot of talk that goes "SL is a game!" and places the onus on those who think otherwise to provide evidence to the contrary.

Let's put the boot on the other foot for a moment. Here's something to think about.

For the purposes of this piece of thinking we shall assume that RL is not a game.

What is a game - what characteristics separate a game from a non-game?

Which of these defining elements does SL have that RL does not?
