Games: Create vs. Play
The easiest part of games is the part where we play them, but the trickiest part of games is the process of actually creating and making them. That's where a lot of programming and coding goes into motion, from making the visuals of the game to the actual functions of the game.
Along with just actually coding and creating a game, lot’s of creativity is used in the process.
Producing a game takes multiple years and it is a lot of work , from making a plan for the game, to how the game will work , features, and then the actual process of programming it. Programmers constantly are also working with many different pieces of code, inserting multiple ones in the game to see which one functions the best. Lot’s of critical thinking goes into making games, but producing games is equally very fun to make. Playing around with different codes, coming up with ideas on how the game will function is always an amusing experience and it always pushes programmers to the next level. People who create games are always pushing their thinking more and more which always expands their knowledge.
Programmers are also continuously picking concepts for games, building the game, refining their code, and also testing out the product. People who create games put a lot of hard work in for people to play them. Programmers are also playing the games they create, trying to figure out any faults so that they can fix it before actually putting the product on market. Playing games and creating them always tie together and both are essential to building a game!
