  Game tree - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In game theory, a game tree is a directed graph whose nodes are positions in a game and whose edges are moves.
The number of leaf nodes in the complete game tree is called the game tree complexity.
Game trees are important in artificial intelligence because one way to pick the best move in a game is to search the game tree using the minimax algorithm or its variants.

 Complete game - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In baseball, a complete game (denoted by CG) is the act of a pitcher pitching an entire game himself, without the benefit of a relief pitcher.
As the 20th century went on, complete games became less and less common, to the point where a good pitcher typically achieves only 1 or 2 complete games a season today.
To put in perspective, as recently as 15-20 years ago, 10-15 complete games a year by a star pitcher was not unheard of.

 GameDev.net - A Practical Guide to Building a Complete Game AI: Volume I   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
If your game's AI is not up to the current level that game player's expectations demand then your game will feel dated and suffer for it in their opinions.
Game AI is not just neural networks and learning systems and complex mathematical structures, although it can be, but primarily game AI is about creating an environment and the appearance of thought from units.
The game developer mantra used to be, and always should be, "If it looks right, it is right." Don’t let the people who are interested in designing real world total physics simulations make you feel bad for creating a simple positional system where you add X to the position each frame.

Ludwig Wittgenstein argued that the concept "game" could not be contained by any single definition, but that games must be looked at as a series of definitions that share a "family resemblance" to one another.

The result is in-game objects with all of the lighting detail of the high poly mesh, but that are still easily rendered in real time.
All game content and data files are compatible across all supported platforms, for fast turnaround time between code and content development on PC, and playtesting on console or PC.
Different genres of games will have widely varying expectations of player counts, scene size, and performance, so these specifications should be regarded as one data point for one project rather than hard requirements for all.

 Gamasutra - Features - "Game Coding Complete: Smart Design Practices"
Game programmers love playing with neat technology, and sometimes their sense of elegance drives them to push non-trivial algorithms and calculations into C++ constructs such as copy constructors or overloaded operators.
One of the most common mistakes game programmers make is that they either over-design or under-design their classes and class hierarchies.
Games tend to build screens and other complex objects constructing groups of objects, such as controls or sprites, and storing them in lists or other collections.

 Gamasutra [Columns] “Book Review: Game Coding Complete”
Game Coding Complete is a generic, non-API specific game programming book that attempts to educate the reader with the ins and outs of the game industry and what goes into making a game from a production viewpoint.
Game Coding Complete meanders from one subject to another in no particular order, never being in-depth enough to really drive home a point; never insightful enough to give that “aha!” moment when the author points out the blindingly obvious that you should have known all along.
The book is littered with McShaffry’s experiences—dubbed “Tales from the pixel mines”—working in the game industry since 1990 where he started at Origin Systems, and it covers what I feel is his narrow experience and field of expertise, primarily DOS and Windows with the Ultima series of games.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is based on making intelligent looking decisions, for the units in our games to look intelligent they have to perform actions that seem reasonable for the situations they are in.
Because we are working from a mouse based input system, we don't expect the user to have to make all the movements around obstacles like they would in a joystick or first-person shooter.
The secret to implementing all game AI is the understanding the cases you are trying to deal with and the results of what you want it to look like.

It was a "puzzle SF" game, inspired by old SF short stories by Issac Asimov or Poul Anderson -- in each scenario, I put the PCs in a situation with a scientific problem in it, and the players had to use deduction and their science knowledge to find a way out of it.
