An important skill a designer can develop is critical thinking. A discussion on developing these skills for game mechanics, & the professional conduct necessary to give & receive criticism of design. In professional game design, one of the most important skills a designer can develop is critical thinking. A designer needs to be able to look at game designs, including his or her own, and be able to rationally and objectively identify the merits and flaws of the design, and be able to communicate that analysis to other designers with frankness and respect. This panel would talk about developing critical thinking skills for game mechanics, and also developing the professional conduct necessary to give and receive criticism of design.
