Lesson 5 October 22 2015

Continuing on from the previous lecture, we learnt about the remaining genre of games:

Gamepad-512

Role Playing Games (eg. Final Fantasy)
Adventure Games (eg. Uncharted)
Strategy Games (eg. Age of Empires)
Sports Games (eg. FIFA)
Fighting Games (eg. Street Fighter)
Simulations (eg. Flight Simulator)

Each one uses different methods of how the game is played. For example an RPG involves levelling up characters and gaining special abilities.

Also we learnt about Game Concept Document and Game Design Documents and how they are typically created. A Concept document is a brief description of a game idea, a Design document is an in-depth explanation of all the commands.
