Reflection on Digital Games Phase 1

 

  • Spent:
    1. You are employed in the USA, you get to make decisions using money, the challenge is to reach the end of the month without going out of cash.
    2. I liked how the game gives you the feeling to run your own life monetarily.
    3. I didn’t like that I have limited options. Also all the events were depressing.
    4. I felt sad and angry because everything happened was bad and I was angry because I had many others solutions that I couldn’t point out.
    5. I learned how the real world looks like, and how is it hard to have children and make them happy. And I discovered many difficulties that I might face in life.
  • BBC Syrian Journey:
  1. You witnessed Syrian revolution, you take decisions to live and make your family live.
  2. I liked how the game is designed to make you feel the spirit and willingness to survive.
  3. I didn’t like that I have limited options.
  4. I felt fearful by the events.
  5. I learned that we are lucky that we had the Egyptian Revolution scenario, not the Syrian. Otherwise millions would’ve died.
  • Domestic Violence in Egypt:
  1. You read an event that happened to you and you choose how to deal.
  2. I liked how the game reflects real problems in harassment.
  3. I didn’t like that I take decisions as a female.
  4. I felt sorry and sad for all girls in Egypt.
  5. I learned that girls face many problems that they might not state, however it makes them suffer.
  • Child Abuse: Orphanage Edition:
  1. You choose your gender; decide how to solve your problems as a discriminated orphan.
  2. I liked that the game had happy ending
  3. I didn’t like that it was too short and strange things happens suddenly, like traveling to Spain.
  4. I felt sad for the orphans because I know how many of them are treated.
  5. I learned that the orphan’s life is really hard as they face many conflicts internally and externally.
  • Animal Rights:
  1. You take decisions as people interact with you; finally you discover you are a dog.
  2. I liked the plot twist that I am a dog.
  3. I didn’t like that I have limited options.
  4. I felt sad for the dogs and animals that are abused.
  5. I learned that animals feel like humans and they should be treated better.
