The Gaming Industry has moved past casinos and resorts. Video games have not only become mainstream but extremely profitable. In the United States alone, gaming generated $9.5 billion in 2007 up to $11.7 billion in 2008 and soaring to $25.1 billion in 2010. Improvements to hardware components such as sound cards, graphics and processors have all contributed to the rise in popularity of gaming. Gaming can generally be broken down into PC gaming, console gaming and mobile gaming. With the advancement of technology also came the complexity of games that are produced. Teams now often consist of programmers, artists, animators, game designers, producers as well as composers, audio engineers and voice actors. Of course, game testers are needed as well as journalists and marketing teams. Bigger companies will also have teams of interpreters and translators to ensure instructions and documentation are correct in all released languages. Technical support specialists are essential for successful companies. Call centers offer help to customers via phone, email and at times online chat.
The future of the Gaming Industry can be found in virtual reality, Twitch, Esports and mobile gaming. Advocate associations are also a rising force with the primary focus being to promote factual information, industry innovation and positive gaming experiences for both gamers and watchers. It is an industry that shows no signs of slowing down.
