A lot of the errors of this Python file have been fixed but there is one last thing it's not working. I need the else statement to loop back to ask the question again if neither Yes or No is entered. You can probably see by the code what I was going for but I'm probably not even on the right track. Can someone help me with this one last thing?
#These are my variables which are just strings entered by the user.
friend = raw_input("Who is your friend? ")
my_name = raw_input("Enter Your Name: ")
game_system = raw_input("What's your favorite game system? ")
game_name = raw_input("What's your favorite game for that system? ")
game_status = raw_input("Do you have the game? (Yes or No) ")
game_store = raw_input("What is your favorite game store? ")
game_price = raw_input("What's the price of the game today? Enter a whole number. ")
#This is what is printed after all the prompts. There is no condition for this print.
print "I went outside today and my friend " + friend + " was outside waiting for me. He said \"" + my_name + ", did you get the new " + game_system + " game yet? You were getting " + game_name + " today, right?\""
#If the condition on the Yes or No question is yes, then this code runs.
if game_status == "YES":
print "\"You know I got it, man!\" I said. \"Awesome! Let's play it,\" he said. \"I heard " + game_name + " is supposed to be amazing!\" We went back inside and took turns playing until " + friend + " had to go home. Today was a fun day."
#If the condition is No, then this code runs.
elif game_status == "No":
print "\"Well let's go get it today and we can come back here and play it!\" We went down to " + game_store + " and baught " + game_name + " for $" + str(game_price) + " and we went back to my house to take turns playing until " + friend + " went home. Today was a good day. (Now try again with the No option!)"
#If the condition meets neither Yes or No, then this code runs, sending the user back to the same question again. This repeats until a condition is met.
raw_input("That answer didn't work. Try again? Do you have the game? (Yes or No) ")
if game_status: "YES"
isn't how you make an
if statement. You're treating it like the syntax is
if some_variable: some_value
and if the variable has that value, the if statement triggers. In fact, the syntax is
and if the expression evaluates to something considered true, the if statement triggers. When you want the
if statement to trigger on
"YES", the expression should be
game_status == "YES", so the
if line should go
if game_status == "YES":
elif line should go
elif game_status == "NO":
