The methods explained by Eric Zimmerman were really interesting to me because it was easy to see parallels between the scientific method and the design research process Zimmerman went through in order to complete his games. The games seemed really simple in concept, but I never imagined there was so much “test; analyze; refine. And repeat,” involved in the entire process. I never realized how an idea in cases like these can start as a simple concept, and then after testing sometimes turn into something completely new. I think that if I were to implement the iterative methods Zimmerman mentions that I could come up with some cool concepts for a motion graphic.
