Video Game Designer Career

Video Game Designer Careers are Hot!
You're not alone if the thought of a career as a video game designer makes you drool. In the ever-expanding multi-billion dollar industry of video games, programmers, designers and developers are enjoying the jobs of their dreams--it's no wonder you want to find yourself among them. As video game technology becomes increasingly complex, there should be more demand for skilled, knowledgeable, and passionate designers.

Do You Have What it Takes?
You are passionate about good gaming, and you've found yourself in hour-long debates with friends about the virtues and vices of certain popular video games. Your love of video games is a critical starting point, but to be a successful video game designer, you should be a tenacious problem-solver, a critical-thinker, and able to work under the pressure of deadlines.

The Work of Video Game Designers, Developers, and Programmers
Generally, a video game designer is responsible for the concept, layout, and gameplay of a video game. Due to the increasingly complex gaming technology, the game designer usually serves a separate function from the game programmer. Video game programmers create code for the game, and developers put on the finishing touches and "publish" the video game.

The Varied Educational Backgrounds of Video Game Designers
Since understanding human behavior and desires can be critical when creating a video game with great appeal, video game designers often have a background in liberal arts disciplines such as fine arts, philosophy, drama, sociology, and psychology. Similarly, the technologically complex design process draws designers with a background in computer science. And today, many programs are available to help get you on the video game design track. In addition to digital entertainment and game design programs, or game art and design programs, some schools offer a bachelor's in game and simulation programming.
