That is a phrase that has a double meaning. Play is the confused little word here. Either way, it will be a verb, but on one hand, it could mean to play as a child would with another child. On the other, it could mean to act like you're nice to get whatyou want. I believe the statement began under the umbrella of the latter definition. This sums up our society. With the simple phrase "Play nice", parents have been teaching their children that being themselves will not pan out in the end. Not only is it not good enough to be themselves, but people will despise and cast them aside because of it. This has not always been the truth, but since the beginning of the phrase "play nice", it has ripped apart the majority of the youth population's ability to think for themselves. Because if it, there are children who need to conform out of addiction. Because of it, there are children who create problems inside their own minds that never needed to be there in the first place. Because of it, we have ignorant people growing in large numbers every day.

Play nice? I think I'll just be me, thank you.
