Gameplay.
Happiness.
Ennui.

These are all nouns, but they're characterized differently than most. I'll try to define what sets them apart:
    While one might compare their present happiness to a far greater happiness from some point in their childhood, you can't describe this action as "comparing happinesses." That would be wrong, 'cause happiness is neither plural nor singular.
So! I'm looking for a word to describe this.

Our language provides one, and I can not think of it.
