I'm a philosopher and am willing to answer any questions you have a about life in a philosophical sense. I don't know everything obviously but this should be fun.

Games are comprised of barriers, freedoms and purposes. Life is comprised of barriers freedoms and purposes. Life is a game and we are all players. There is something rather than nothing because as life entities(souls) that's what we do. We play games.

What's the nature of reality.

Not sure if you are still answering or not because as of now lots of questions seem left unanswered, but here goes...

Are actions guided by some form of will/self/mind, even if it is just our own will self-manifesting as our outward desires to perform some action, or is the universe purely a mechanical device devoid of any true morality? and why?

Based on your response to LesMis, I have an inkling of how you might respond.

No offense, but your answers so far have been rather unimaginative. Dare I say, jejune?
Frankly, I expect more from a self-proclaimed philospher.
