comment Difference between the words for “feeling”
You may want to include [体調]{たい・ちょう}. It technically means "physical/bodily condition", but you hear it often in 体調がいい・悪い to mean "I feel good/bad". Basically, it's the same as 体の具合.

comment Is に okay in 「田中さんはビデオゲームに遊んでいます」?
Welcome to Japanese Language on StackExchange! Please see our Help section for questions that are on-topic. This borders on a direct translation request (which are off-topic), so you might want to refine the question. Maybe you can include why you chose to use , any alternatives you might have considered, etc.

comment Random meaning of 結ぶ
All of those examples are metaphorically binding, or tying something together. おむすび: the rice is tied up by the seaweed; 結びの一番・言葉: concluding ("wrapping up") the match/address. 結果・結末・結論: wrapping up the efforts/story/logic (resp.).
