Game Reviews Reviewed: A Game Designer’s Perspective on AI-generated Game Review Analyses

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingsConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Due to the growing number of available games, game reviews provide a vital basis for decision-making when buying a game. Apart from that, these reviews could serve as a rich design resource and inspiration for game designers. In this paper, we analyze game reviews formulated by players via a large language model and ask GPT-3, an artificial intelligence, game design-related questions based on the Player Experience Inventory (PXI) questionnaire. The obtained results are evaluated in expert interviews, where we asked four indie game designers about the quality of the game review analyses. The experts were generally impressed by the AI-generated texts but also provided some recommendations regarding the game review analyses’ quality, structure, and setup.
