In the following three sentences, the verb 'see' have been used with the same definition.

A game that sees people playing dead.

A stunt that sees people eating corn off a rotating drill.

Latest internet fad sees daredevils throw themselves to the ground.

I've consulted multiple dictionaries to search for a 'see' definition that closely matches its usage above. However, none of the entries I scanned through is satisfactory to me. Please explain what 'see' means in those examples, and if possible provide a link to the right entry or even idiom.

Many thanks.
