Understanding Games is series of four games explaining the basic concepts of video games. The tutorial-style episodes deal with rules, motivation, learning and identification in video games. The player is guided through each episode by the narrators Bob and Bub, who explain core concepts of games to the player. The player can experience these concepts directly while playing the integrated games. If you’re trying to explain games to someone – a student, a loved one, your parents – this is a great way to start. AndreasZecher Understan ding Games
