◈ Writing Prompt 2
Write a 500-word review for a current computer or video game. Break down the game into its various elements and critique how they work in concert to deliver a unified experience to the player (or don't). How does the game compare with other current games in its genre? Support your claims with reasoned arguments.
Write a 500-word response to an article about game culture. Find a news article or blog post that discusses race, violence, gender, or other current issues in games (please include a link). How do you see the article as relevant to your studies and future plans as a professional game designer? Do you agree with the author’s claims? Why? How might designers and players address this issue in the future?
Write a 500-word “pitch” for an original game. Present an idea to potential producers/investors. Outline the mechanics, world, and characters of the game (be sure to include the title, genre, and target audience). Why would your game succeed? How is it different from other games on the market?
