Loops The 'game' aspect of this beast we call a computer game always involves 'loops'.The player starts with a mental model that prompts them to...Apply an action to...The game system and in return...Receives feedback that...Updates their mental model and starts the loop all over again. Or kicks off a new loop. Nested, dependent loops yields complex feedback loops and unexpected dynamics. Interrelated actions that trigger multiple loops in order to bring about specific system dynamics.Systems of crisply defined cause and effect that yield self contained systems of meaning.Functional feedback that helps players understand causation.

Arcs 'Arcs' have similar elements to a loop, but are not built for repeated usage. Mixing Loops and Arcs Conclusion. l4Krits. Extensible 3D (X3D), ISO/IEC FCD 19775-1r1:200x, 28 DIS component.
