If it's all just a game, what are the stakes?

I've been thinking a lot about the great theories I've been reading on this site about how Jacob/Nemesis are locked in some kind of Game, with our Losties as the pawns. I don't know about anyone else, however, but I would feel extremely cheated--like the actions of the characters throughout the entire show were for nothing--if the whole point of the Game is just to "win" and thumb your nose at the other player. If you are a proponent of the "It's a Game" theory, what do you think the stakes could be? I'd hope they'd be something epic, like Saving/Destroying the World, as opposed to "Oh boy it's my turn to rule the Island now!"
