What is meant by character's goals?
Well in Monopoly you could think of the character's goal as getting around the game board and passing go collecting $200.
In Zelda the character's goal is to defeat Gannon and rescue the Princess Zelda.
In Parcheesi, the character's goal is to get around the game board without being sent to jail and make it all the way to the home square.
Or, how about in the multi-player game of Quake Team Fortress? In that game the character's goals are to protect their flag from capture and capture the enemy's flag.
Go through every game you can making note of what the goals of the character would be.
