Game analysis is the backbone of the field of game studies. Despite this, game analysis is seldom articulated as an actual skill that should be practiced with thought and care. While most researchers indeed analyze games, and there is no shortage of analytical frameworks, there are few good actual methodologies on the subject. The result of this lack is, at best, that game analysis becomes tacit knowledge that researchers can practice but not describe, therefore making it difficult for students and newcomers to enter the field, and at worst, that game analysis becomes an inadvertent and unreflected practice leading to poor research.
