Then see this Love playing gamesLove playing games What is game designing? My ideas Game designing means a person who makes and design's games or if a person who is involved in the creation of a game then he is a game designer. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing audio, doing user interface, whether you’re doing the loading screen. A game designing involves : thorough understanding of game play theory;
storytelling and narrative development skills;
information design and user interface design skills;
excellent communication and presentation skills;
the ability to work as part of a team and independently;
systematic and strategic thinking;
imagination and creativity;
knowledge of the requirements of the relevant Health and Safety legislation and procedures. Designing Video game involves a series of development steps. When a game product is developed with all desired features and specifications, then the manufacturers look for people who can play their newly developed product and in turn help them in dealing with every possible error which might be present in their product model. This type of playing is generally termed as beta testing and these people are called beta testers.
Thus, beta tester is one who tests a game product before it is officially released to the market for commercialization. They help video game companies to identify undesirable effects and thus eliminate any weak point present in the game. As customer are given maximum priority and their satisfaction is indeed the most important objective of any company, these game companies offer jobs as game testers and pay them for testing their products.
Beta testers need to test several aspects of a game and make them error free, so that these are ready to be delivered to the market. Though it appears to be simple and easy option to work and earn incomes, but it is not actually the case. Testing games involves lot of hard work and patience from the testers. No doubt, they are able to access advanced and sophisticated game versions, but most of the times they need to play and perform same actions repeatedly for several hours to find out all the bugs in the games. Thus, these types of jobs are somewhat tedious and gruelling. Job role of a game tester? Quality assurance is a critical component in game development, though the video game industry does not have a standard methodology. Instead developers and publishers have their own methods. Small developers do not have QA staff, however large companies may employ QA teams full-time. High-profile commercial games are professionally and efficiently tested by publisher QA department.[7]
Testing starts as soon as first code is written and increases as the game progresses towards completion.[8][9] The main QA team will monitor the game from its first submission to the QA until as late as post-production.[9] Early in the game development process the testing team is small and focuses on daily feedback for new code. As the game approaches alpha stage, more team members are employed and test plan is written. Sometimes features that are not bugs are reported as bugs and sometimes programming team fails to fix issues first time around.[10] A good bug-reporting system may help the programmers work efficiently. As the projects enters beta stage, the testing team will have clear assignments for each day. Tester feedback may determine final decisions of exclusion or inclusion of final features. Introducing previously uninvolved testers with fresh perspective may help identify new bugs.[9][11] At this point the lead tester communicates with the producer and department heads daily.[12] If the developer has external publisher, then coordination with publisher's QA team starts. For console games, a build for console company QA team is sent. Beta testing may involve volunteers, for example, if the game is multiplayer.[11]
Testers receive scheduled uniquely identifiable game builds[11] from the developers.[citation needed] The game is play-tested and testers note any uncovered errors. These may range from bugs to art glitches to logic errors and level bugs. Testing requires creative gameplay to discover often subtle bugs. Some bugs are easy to document, but many require detailed description so a developer can replicate or find the bug. Testers implement concurrency control to avoid logging bugs multiple times.[citation needed] Many video game companies separate technical requirement testing from functionality testing altogether since a different testing skillset is required.[5]
If a video game development enters crunch time before a deadline, the game-test team is required to test late-added features and content without delay. During this period staff from other departments may contribute to the testing—especially in multiplayer games.[citation needed] Programing knowledge of a game tester. &
List of best university o game designing. Autodesk game design software solutions complement most video game design software and commercial game engines, offering tools and middleware to help create more innovative game experiences. Because gamers demand inspiring animation and effects, Autodesk software helps game designers, artists, and developers to meet these demanding needs with:

3D character animation
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Creative 3D modeling workflows
Motion capture solutions
Whether you need 3D modeling or animation solutions, cutting-edge middleware, or interoperability technology, Autodesk has a broad toolset to suit your game design program. Making a game is a tough job but playing is easy.
If i get resources i would like to make Age of Empires IV in which i would divide into four parts Rajputs,World War 2, Israel, and Mughals.
I would first see the history and design the game,
I would test the game myself and with my bro. Love playing games............. Best universities + schools for game designing 1. University of Southern California, Los Angeles
