1. We're being graded on having a complete and coherent game with a clear objective and argument being made and having a specific audience being targeted. In the rationale, we are being graded on the completion of the length of writing required and having citations from the readings from class. Also on writing about the process of making the game and why.
2. I think we aren't being graded on what subject we choose for the game as long as we can justify the argument and audience.
3. I think that we're being graded on these things because the inclusion of articles we've read show that we can relate the content of this whole unit and tie it all together into this one final thing and it's important to know your intentions of creating something like this video game. Knowing the argument and audience in a context outside of the classroom is helpful when having to market yourself or your ideas to other people.
