How to Make a Great Video Game

Chef’s Note

At first, I thought this recipe only provided a developer’s perspective on how to make a great video game. But, as a gamer, I realized that my recipe would look very similar to a developer’s. I either want the ingredients listed below, or I experience some of these feelings while playing a great game. The developer might feel a sense of accomplishment after they finish making a complex game and ship it. I might feel a sense of accomplishment after I beat their challenging work. This recipe should work for everyone.

Ingredients

  • 15 pounds of love
  • 9 pounds of fun
  • 5 pounds of creativity
  • 8 cups of joy
  • 5 cups of wonder and awe
  • 2 heaping cups of beauty
  • 1 cup of a sense of accomplishment
  • 1/4 cup of sweat
  • 2 tablespoons of challenge
  • 1 level tablespoon of  immersion (not too much so as to avoid addiction)
  • a pinch of anger (optional – depending on mood and temperament)
  • a pinch of frustration (optional – depending on mood and temperament)
  • code and other technical stuff for garnish

Method

Preheat oven to 400°F.  In a large bowl, mix all ingredients until combined. Pour mixture into baking tray and cook for 50 minutes or until golden. Serve immediately with fresh microchips.

  1. Yum. When playing your game I can really taste the sweat.

  2. Sounds like it would turn out great. Speaking of video game cooking, baking a Red Ring of Death’d Xbox 360 can sometimes bring it back to life.
