Week 11... more gameplay o.o

Gameplay is the experience overall of playing a game… which I’m sure we’ve covered! Is it important? I think it is, but I’m not sure how to explain why. I guess… without gameplay, would there even be a game? If gameplay is the experience of a game overall, then, it is important…
Definable set of rules? Hmmm. I don’t think so, seen as everybody’s idea of good gameplay would differ, due to personal preferences. Yeah?
The gameplay is designed into the game isn’t it? The designers choose the look of the game, the interactivity, the characters, the story, the ending… Everything in a game is programmed, so yes, gameplay can be designed in. But that’s just my opinion on the matter. Although, the latter of the question, ‘random convergence of several interacting factors’ seems to fit it too… I’m really confused right now. Probably seem like an idiot ^^;
But, in conclusion! Yes! Gameplay is important, as I pointed out at the beginning, and also, without peoples own personal preferences on gameplay, no-one would enjoy a game.
