Challenges and solutions
My future career choice is a video game designer. Being a video game designer is a very difficult and stressful job. They face many challenges on a daily basis. Two of the biggest challenges/problems that video game designers encounter include creating an interesting story for their game and fixing bugs and game play malfunctions in their game. The most interesting part in a videogame and what we most look for is the plot or story of the game. If the game has an interesting story than that game is already half successful. For example, Grand Theft Auto 5 has a very interesting story in their game and this game became very successful. Another challenge that video game designers face is fixing bugs and gameplay malfunctions in their game. Bugs and gameplay malfunctions really irritate and make people angry when playing a videogame. Small things like these can really ruin a company’s reputation and they can possibly see a decline in sales in the near future.
Video game designers face a lot of problems and challenges and it is up to them to find a solution to the problem. A problem that game designers face is creating an interesting story in their game. A solution to this problem can be to first look at the age group to whom the video game is targeted to. Then according to the age group you can create a story best suitable for that age group. For example, if the target audience for a video game is 7-10 years old then the story should not be about violence or guns etc. but it should be about sports or something that that age group can like and enjoy. Another big problem that game designers face are fixing bugs and gameplay malfunctions. There is only one simple solution to this problem which is to test out the game completely before releasing it to the public. Before releasing a game the company should allow some people to play the game for a little bit and see if there is anything wrong. That way the game designers can fix the problems before releasing it to the public.
