  1. A lot of folks think of game design as includ­ing the expe­ri­ence design — but then there’s no name for the dis­ci­pline of cre­at­ing game­play, which is quite inde­pen­dent of expe­ri­ence design.

    So I tend to use game design to ref­er­ence the con­struc­tion of game sys­tems, and expe­ri­ence design to cov­er cre­at­ing an expe­ri­ence using the game design as one ele­ment.

  2. Ah but I can agree with that def­i­n­i­tion Raph. From your post I thought you were argu­ing that game design and expe­ri­ence design are com­plete­ly sep­a­rate. See­ing it as a part-whole rela­tion­ship is I think much more pro­duc­tive than putting them in some form of a dichoto­my. Thanks for drop­ping my and com­ment­ing again.
