In an unbalanced role-playing game, for example, players might earn so much gold from easy battles that they could purchase the most advanced weapons and armor right away for use against the weakest enemies. On the other hand, if they earned too little gold, the game would demand too much repetitive work for too little reward and become frustrating. Video games contain multiple variables that require a Goldilocks range of values—not too high or too low, but just right. But games are dynamic systems, and the interplay of these variables can be very complex and hard to completely anticipate.

These things have physical characteristics that the players are unable to affect without changing the game. The design of these environmental constraints can be a very important element of the game experience, because they have a significant role in giving the gameplay its structural shape. Environmental constraints include the boundaries and structure of the play space. Chess is played on an 8×8 grid of squares of alternating colors. Those properties directly affect the way the game executes, which would be fundamentally different if played on a 7×7 grid or a 9×9 grid.

Some games provide players with no objective other than to showcase their creativity and imagination. Simulation games like SimCity appeal to the innate delight in constructing things by letting players build their own living societies from the ground up.
