The Kobayashi Maru - No-Win Scenarios in Games - Extra Credits


Teacher or professor: Extra Credits
Subject: History, Politics, Mythology
Content of the Lesson: Come hang out on the twitch channel! : twitch.tv/ExtraCredits Ah, the infamous Kobayashi Maru. The no-win Star Trek scenario is actually more common in video games than you might think. When games employ random elements, you increase the odds of creating a scenario where before the player even touches the controller, they have already lost. That must be a huge game design mistake, right? Well... It's not always so simple.
