Special Friday Topic 1 - due Friday, 9/25 before class

Read the following article:

Then pick one game that you really like and one that you do not like at all. Why do like one and not the other? Using the dimensions talked about in the article, explain what you like about the first game and what you do not like about the second game. (That means, saying "don't like the game because it's boring" is not good enough. What is it about the game that makes it boring?)

Hand in a one-page essay on Blackboard.
