Week 1

February 4, 2010

Today we talked about three games that use an agile system that incorporates design patterns by Tim O’ Reilley

the games we picked which we  thought incorporated these patterns whee:

The Sims 3– by user generated content that constantly evolves

Half life 2– by introducing a system that uses digital distribution

Unreal Tournament – for the unreal development kit that lets developers modify and create their own content.
