Objective:
Identify common game genres and discuss their changes over the history of the industry.

Method:
Certain genres are found more frequently during certain time periods and typically built using one kind of environment (i.e. 2D top-down or 3D ground-up) than another. Write a brief paper explaining which game environment each genre typically works best on and why. Discuss how hardware and other aspects might have played a role in the evolution of different genres over the past fourty years. Try to answer the following question: how do the environment’s features (e.g. graphic style, mechanics, player controls) and the way that it is used facilitate or hinder the gameplay in each genre?

Turn In:
When finished with your short paper over game environment and genre, submit it to Schoology and post a PDF version to your blog. It is due by Friday, September 28.
