Game theory in general looks at how individuals or groups make choices that will, in turn, affect other parties' choices. Nash Equilibrium refers to a condition in which every participant has optimized its outcome, based on the other players' expected decision.
 
In summary, game theorists look at decisions, not in isolation, but as part of a system of interactions.
