I hate word limits.
basically, for one of my subjects, we have to write a “game critique” on any game, digital or analogue or whatever. By critique I mean analysis, for example, I’m going to write on either the corruption of society reflected by the corruption of sanity in American McGee’s Alice, or on the lack of knowledge of plot in the game, without the book of notes that came with it. So it’s like, literatureish.
However, it is limited to 500 words.
I could write 2000. But no, 500. If we write more then 540-550, we start losing marks.
