At a Glance: Game Design
Game design or game development involves the design of gameplay: the environment, art direction, characters, storyline, and other aspects of a video game. Video games can span a number of genres and platforms, including first-person shooters (FPS), real-time strategies (RTS), action games, role-playing games (RPG), and mobile games. There are a wide range of gaming consoles, from the Sony PlayStation to Microsoft Xbox to Nintendo Wii and portable systems.
