GAMING TO VIRTUAL REALITY:
You might have heard of even used Virtual reality headsets for playing games. This is just the beginning because for now, you can only interact in a virtual way with the world in the sense that, you can watch the virtual objects in real life and interact only in a digital way with them. Other people around you can never know what you are watching and playing inside your headset. But in near future, augmented virtual reality will take over the world when each one of us will be wearing just a lens in the eye and interact with the virtual world just like a reality.
Have you ever thought of video calling without wires and with people on the other end of the earth? Aren’t you amazed at the technology around you that you never thought have existed before? Isn’t it? The same is the case with video games. They are evolving and their impact on other fields of life is also very powerful.
GAMING AND LATEST TECHNOLOGY:
Do you have any idea, most of the technologies are first introduced in the games before they come into reality? It’s like testing those technologies in games for the people. Gamers know how much they love to play sci-fi games because they are introduced with the most advanced technologies in them that ever existed or will come in the future in reality. For example, you can see many weapons in-game that do not exist in real life, but after some time, they are in the market. Also, the demand for the latest technology in the games is so much high that each new game must be with the best and highest possible graphics and features.
All of the gaming companies are always striving to develop a game that will blow the minds of the players and their competitors. That’s why they have to do thorough research on the latest possible technologies to include in their games. So gaming industry is always in need of the best professionals of all the fields to make their game a successful one and as per expectations of the gamers.
SKILLS AND PROFESSIONS REQUIRED FOR GAMING INDUSTRY:
Have you ever thought of applying to do a job in any of the gaming industries? I bet NO! Because most of the people except a few believe that games are just a waste of time. But let me tell you what possible things you can do in the gaming industry!
WHY GAMING INDUSTRY NEEDS CONTENT WRITERS:
If you are a gamer, you might have thought once while playing game that, who has written this amazing story right? Have you also been mesmerized by the game play and the emotional story inside it? Yes! Its the content writers that make anything come into reality. Unless story is not written, no one can progress towards making an marvelous game. Also, there are certain games that need next levels and stories for them. So game developers always require content writers to make a story for the players. Isn’t it cool?
WHY GAMING INDUSTRY NEEDS GRAPHIC DESIGNERS:
So here comes the masters of gaming industries right! If you need any scene or any imagination to come into reality, then contact your graphic designer to build a scene for them. You need any clothes designed for any character or you need a character to be designed? You have to contact your graphic designer. Any weapon, item, furniture, or surrounding you need for a certain scene in your game. Then Graphic designers are there for you. Although most of the animation is done by coding, yet you can ask the graphic designer to do some animations for a certain scene.
WHY GAMING INDUSTRY NEEDS CODERS:
Coders are the main part of the Gaming Industry. Without them, no game can be developed, especially the ones that need a high processing system. So, coders are masters of masters in the gaming industry. You can say, they are kings. So, developing the whole game and finishing it is their responsibility, and \this work needs a lot of hard work and stamina, and time.
WHY GAMING INDUSTRY NEEDS MARKETERES:
When the game is finished and even published, how will people know that a certain game is out there with specific features and story? Its the job of the social media marketers guys! They will be promoting the games out there and gamers will then play the game to give their feedback on it.
WHY GAMING INDUSTRY NEEDS MUSICIANS:
Games are nothing whiteout a good music. Therefore, there is always a need of good composers and musicians and even singers to make the best music for game.
GAMERS NOT ONLY PLAY GAMES BUT THEY EARN FROM THEM:
Let me tell you if you think that gamers are just time wasters and especially streamers then you are in a big misunderstanding. Pro gamers are not only required by different companies to represent them but also they can earn from streaming their games and showing their pro skills. Also, gamers can compete in tournaments to win prizes and much more…
So basically its a teamwork and no one can make any game alone. OR make it successful. You will be needing content writers, graphic designers, developers and marketers, and many other roles to make your game finished and successful.
