Welcome to 'My way, Elaborated!'
In Hunger Games, the basic human instinct is elaborated by the deprivation of a basic need. Hunger enslaves humanity and unlocks the savage in the quest for food. Just observe how a good person justifies evil to have something for the stomach. Just observe how a good person opted to betray anyone to keep his bread and butter. We play on human character to stay in the game. Survival brings us to the next level.
The art of survival brings us to human senses. It makes way to creativity by looking back and ensuring that the same fate will not happen in the future. Take for example Jerry White, who came up with these steps:

Isn’t it heaven?
