Very Very basic question

May sound pretty nooby, but what is platforming and what is sandbox style gaming?

Also, waht are the other types of games?

Platforming is like Ratchet and Clank. Jumping across things and climbing things and what not. Basically in old games all they did was have platforms move and you had to jump across to get to the checkpoint. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platform_game

Sandbox its like Grand theft auto, its open world enviroment. Your playing with everything around you in an open world. Like sitting in a sandbox with toys when your a kid. non-linear, you do what you want. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandbox_games

Some other types to take a look at (it doesnt list ALL of them, but the major ones)

Im interested (obviously) in the game industry so i know a little bit about it lol.

Sandbox games are the same thing as Grand Theft Auto
