I'm a software engineering student with a game development focus. How big of a part does requirement analysis play in game development?
I'm asking because I'm trying to decide whether to take a class on requirements analysis. Here is a description:
An in-depth study of current research and practice in requirements elicitation, requirements, analysis, requirements specification,requirements verification and validation, and requirements management.
Would this type of knowledge be useful for an independent game developer? (The alternatives are artificial intelligence or software architecture.)
