The MDA (Mechanics, Dynamics, and Aesthetics) Framework is a widely used model for understanding game design. It provides a way for game designers to think about the different components of a game and how they interact with each other. Understanding the MDA framework can help game designers create games that are balanced, engaging, and satisfying for the player.
The player motivation theory explains why players play games and what motivates them.
