A 'must' for everyone! Entrepreneurship is something unique, is not for everyone but can be reached with some effort. A course that can be applied to all areas. Nice experience.

> A lot of content
> Provided a lot of outside reading material
> Passionate professor
> A lot of good refreshers (about CVs, teamwork, business practices)
> I hope in the future more time could be spent on monetization theories and practices
> More emphasis on mobile games (as much as I dislike them)
> Maybe some type of "case study" examples about games from conceptualization to publishing

While I did not enjoy this course per se, it was essential so I could better understand the game industry. Some US-centric perspectives do not drive anybody out of scope. I was able to understand and compare the equivalents in Europe. What I would improve would be some quiz questions. Some tend to be confusing, and even misleading in some cases. But overall, recommended.

Many of the issues from the previous course have been fixed in this course. Not bad, but there were still issues with the video content not matching up well with the assignments. Especially in that the assignments are never talked about in the videos, especially how to create the papers that are asked of the student.

Better than the second one. It should focus more on the specifics of the game industry. It provides much generalist advice that can be gotten in much better depth in other entrepreneurship content on Coursera
I missed a section on what are the main players on the gaming industry and a brief discussion of each

I find the course material at Coursera all very good. What is lacking is the peer review system. I understand that there is no way they could offer these courses at these prices. It is however the only reservation I have.

I liked the course, it was not just about business with games but all the soft aspects related to making games as well as the ones more related with creating the company an so forth.
I enjoyed the course very much.

I felt this course was much more fair and the assignments were more realistic than in the previous course, it was better structured as well.
In general this course was very helpful and instructive.

Some business content but more of an overview of the wacky culture of Game Companies. It does get student to try and think about the realites of trying to make a game a financial success.

Great content and great teacher. But I found the assignments and the quizzes not that great. I reckon the questions and corrections were a bit subjective and time consuming.

Awesome course! But I think It was a very short course. I wish it had more content.
Very expensive course for this amount of content...still I really like it =).

Excellent introduction to the business of games. Opened my eyes to just how much I have to think about when I decide to make a game development team.

I believe the final assignment should be a Business Plan for a Game Developer Company. It would sum up all that we learned throughout the course!

Coveres about 80% off business side. It lacks marketing and differenct campaings for starting your game conpany or strategyes for getting funds.

Very interesting course in the business aspects of video gaming. Perhaps a little bit basic (for undergrads) but it has an awesome experience

Game video pitch is the most interesting assignment. I have got chance to see other students' ideas.
