game balance

the proper set of features to ensure a good level of fairness, challenge, and interest in a game. Three types of balance need to be considered:

  • equality between players, so that no one has an unfair advantage
  • match between a player’s skill and game difficulty, so that players’ achievements are based on skill not luck and advanced players continue to be challenged
  • balance between options in a game, so that no option is obviously preferred, and no option is useless because it’s never chosen
