No one can deny the popularity of video games. Mario and Luigi are notably the most famous brothers of all time while Donkey Kong is the most celebrated ape in modern history. With 65 percent of households in America having an avid video game player, it only makes sense that this is a multi-billion-dollar industry. And now with the popularity of live streaming video games on Twitch and uploading video game vlogs on YouTube where some of the top video game YouTubers like Pew Die Pie make millions a year, there is a big opportunity.
In 2015 alone revenues reached to $23.5 billion. The foundation and backbone of this industry are not the marketers or the CEO’s but instead it is the video game creators. But what do video game creators do and would it be a good career choice for you? If you have a passion for music, sound effects and like playing video games there is a big opportunity for audio production in the gaming and esports industries.
