Lesson One: Getting Started-Game Research

Lesson Aim: to get students to realise that many games have been created with a target audience in mind. This is important in shaping the development of the game and how it is marketed.  

Ask students to think about games they have enjoyed playing. 

Use the following questions as part of a group discussion:

  • Who are games designed for?
  • Why are games fun?
  • Why do people make games?
  • Why do people play games?

Students fill in and complete the Game Research Worksheet to explore an existing game they enjoy playing in more detail.
