class GameListCreate(APIView):

        games = models.Game.objects.all()
        serializer = serializers.GameSerializer(games, many=True)
        return Response(serializer.data)

    def post(self, request, format=None):
        serializer = serializers.GameSerializer(data=request.data)
        return Response(serializer.data, status=status.HTTP_201_CREATED)

Hi Philipp, you don't have status imported, you need to import at the top of the file along with the other imports like so:

from rest_framework import status

alternatively you can substitute the status.HTTP_201_CREATED with a 201:

return Response(serializer.data, status=201)

Hope that helps!!
