  • Who cares?
  • This stereotype is often untrue--in how people play 1-4-player games, networked gaming like xbox live, more actively social video games like wii &amp; rock band, mmos, facebook ‘games,’ etc. in may ays, mobile games are an extension of changes that are already happening/have already happened to how we use technology in games
  • Most games are not ‘designed’ or sold How do you become a comic artist? Make a comic, sell it to a friend for a quarter How do you become a game designer? Make a game, get your friends to play it
  • Hardware hacking as a playground for game mechanics
