James Paul Gee At the level of programming, video games are algorithms. At the level of invention, they are not. In my view, a good video game demands a coherent, meaningful, and engaging fit between its game mechanics (the types of interactions the player has with the game in controlling play) and its content (what the game is primarily about).

I suppose that’s not huge compared with many other classes, but DH101 is very hands-on. I am fortunate enough to have a TA, the awesome Francesca Albrezzi, who runs separate weekly labs.
