The study presents a phenomenological analysis of the value experience in the emotional immersion in games. The text shows two possible variants of this experience: emotional illusion and delusion. In the emotional illusion, players emotionally distance themselves from their hierarchy of values to enjoy the game. With emotional delusion, emotions motivate players to deny their hierarchy of values. The study explains this distinction in the context of certain theories of rational action.

W pracy przedstawiono fenomenologiczną analizę doświadczenia wartości w przeżyciu emocjonalnej imersji w grach. Tekst pokazuje dwa jego warianty: emocjonalną iluzję oraz emocjonalne kłamstwo. W emocjonalnej iluzji gracz emocjonalnie dystansuje się względem własnej hierarchii wartości, aby rozkoszować się grą. W emocjonalnym kłamstwie emocje motywują graczy do decyzji niezgodnych z przyjętą przez nich hierarchią wartości. Zaproponowano wyjaśnienie tych doświadczeń w kontekście niektórych teorii racjonalnego działania.
