B4. Provide Clear Goals

“I have a clear idea of what my overarching, intermediate, and moment-to-moment goals are while I play.”

The goals of the game are clear, so players are able to find structure in their gameplay and can plan their actions around what goal(s) they wish to complete.

A general sense of short term and long term goals gives structure to the player’s experience. When there are several layers of goals, players have more control over their experience and can rely on said goals to determine the next step in game play.
