With the advent of arcade, home console, computer, and now mobile and tablet games, game design has become an elaborate process. Specialists trained in a variety of disciplines collaborate to create great computer or video games replete with state-of-the-art animation and visual effects.
Historically, game design has primarily been male-dominated, but in the past 25 years, more women have been entering the field. From 1989 through 2009, women went from being 3 percent to 11 percent of the game design workforce, and since 2009, the number of women hired by gaming companies has tripled.

Some skills that game designers may need include:

  • Computer programming and knowledge of programming languages
  • Coding
  • Problem solving and critical thinking
  • Knowledge of audio and video equipment
  • Written and verbal communication
