The popularity of video games is a staple of our culture and appears as though it's
going to stay. From the different genres of video games to the complex stories and
character developments, video games have become an entity that spans generations of
gamers. For many, it is an escape into a new world of fantasy and adventure. As a
result, it is no wonder why so many high school and college graduates are going into
the field of animation and game design. Several colleges offer courses and programs
related to learning how to create video games. The video game industry is a growing,
multi-billion dollar field and many of the college graduates want to get their hands on
the controller.
The increasing demand for more games with better stories and more life-like graphics
has been on the minds of serious gamers for years. There is no satisfying the serious
gamer because the graphics continue to get better every year and the stories tend to get
more interesting, too. Therefore, the video game players expect more every time. This
is why colleges are now offering courses in animation and game design. They see the
prevalence of video games in our culture and the people who want to build and design
these games.
But the programs and courses that deal with animation and game design are not only
about drawing and how to create a video game. Creating a game that is both playable
and sellable is not an easy task. Basic classes for those who begin in animation and
game design deal with topics such as artistic terminology and artistic theory. From
there, a student can expect to enter classes in which they generate ideas and concepts
for their particular video game. There is also an additional course dealing with
presenting your idea to a video game company.
If you decide to go into the field of animation and game design, you can also expect to
take some more educationally geared courses. There are some that deal with the history
of video games along with other courses that teach the demographic makeup of who
plays certain games. You may also be required to do reviews of games and learn about
the nuances of the different gaming genres. But success in these classes will inevitably
lead to more enticing topics such as artificial intelligence and prototyping your game.
For the avid video game player, taking these courses may make the game-playing
experience a more interesting one as he thinks about the intricacies of every move
made on the screen. For others, however, these courses may serve to only ruin the
mystery that they have associated with playing video games.
The field of animation and game design is not, as the name implies, all fun and games.
In fact, it is the opposite. There is a lot of hard work that goes into designing these
elaborate games. From conception to the store shelves, many experts have contributed
something to its success or, consequently, its failure. Learning the techniques of being
a successful video game creator is much like learning how to play an instrument. You
have to learn note by note, then chord by chord before you can even think about
learning how to play a song. That is the same thing with this lucrative field. You can
be a gamer your entire life but, other than the occasional game idea, your gaming skills
are irrelevant when it comes to creating a game. By completing the animation and
game design program, you will see and appreciate where the growth and direction of
the animation and gaming industry is headed.
