For a video game description to be accurate as a review, it is important to include elements such as graphics (appearance), interface (or controls) and the actual gameplay itself, including difficulty, perspective, genre and plot. Firstly, appearance is one of the first elements noticed by anyone playing the game. In modern games, especially those that are most recently introduced, a big emphasis is placed on the quality of the appearance, the intense detail of the graphics and the life-likeness of what is shown on the screen. No matter what the characters, whether they be fictional or real, animals, humans or robots, a large emphasis is always placed on how the game looks to the player. In addition, some games place little emphasis on the appearance, such as in older games that did not have the luxury of enhanced graphics, so on either end of the spectrum, appearance is important. Another important element of gameplay is the interface, or the way the players control their character(s) through the game.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
