My boyfriend owns a gaming website and he suggested I should write an article for his site (Gamer Nation)
from the side of someone who has some knowledge about the gaming industry and how things work when a game is being made.
This got me thinking over the last couple of days, and I remember back to the times before I decided I wanted to work in the industry, and I was astounded by my ignorance over how things work. Thinking about it, the industry is quite a well oiled machine that many lay persons don't have a clue about/don't care about. Putting a disc in your PS3 doesn't really conjugate a thought as to the 100's of talented people, including many on this site, who come together to put that game in your hands.
And this made me want to ask the people of polycount: does it make a difference how much a general gamer knows about how a game is made?
Do you wish more people who had nothing to do with the industry admired how much work it takes?
