Of games to play this sem

Wahaha! Need to play the following games for my electronic gaming module:

Retro & Casual Games:

Space Invaders
Donkey Kong
Super Mario Bros
Street Fighter 2
Diner Dash
Bejeweled 2
Geometry Wars (a clone called Grid Wars)

And some more game demos, one from each genre:

First-person shooter:

Racing game:
GTR FIA Racing

Sports game:

Role-play game:
Baldur's Gate 2

Strategy game:
Age of Mythology

Of course the main objective is not to just play, but to think of some questions as we play, like:

What are the elements that make this game fun?
What does not work well?
Is this only my subjective taste or a general issue?
Who is the target audience?
What might be potential other options and what are the pros and cons?
Which technological game systems are included?
What do other games do differently?

Alrighty, looks like i got quite alot of gaming to do this weekend. (Ya its weekend for me already, thurs and fri no class, super long weekend woah!)

Happy gaming!! Heh.
