This week on Monty’s Minute, a viewer asks how to go about finding jobs with video game developer companies in their area.
People ask quite often about getting a job with video game developers, but one viewer wants to know: how do we go about finding out what companies are near us and if they are actually hiring. He also wonders what someone wanting to get into the industry should do about the common requirement of at least a years worth of experience.
Monty has great answers to these questions, including checking out a site called gamedevmap.com which will show you the locations of video game developer jobs around the world.
Will we ever see games with the same quality of in-game graphics as their trailers?
Another viewer addresses the differences in quality between in game and GCI graphics. He wants tok now if it will be possible in the next ten years or so to have a game that is of the same graphical quality as what video game developer companies are displaying in their trailers.
Will the video game industry ever offer employees union-like powers similar to those in the film industry?
Gary has often discussed the parallels between the video game industry and the film industry, especially when it comes to hiring and firing practices. One viewer points out that in the film industry, employees have unions in place to help keep them from being mistreated and wonders if they think the video games industry will ever allow their employees to have the same.
