  • Romero also thinks it’s important to engage other industry veterans, such as Lemarchand cheap fifa 16 coins and Spector. “The area I see growing the most is game industry veterans going into education as you’re seeing with me, Warren, Richard, Tracy Fullerton, Eric Zimmerman, Frank Lantz. There’s a trend of game developers who have worked in the industry who, for whatever reason, love the idea of going into education. And schools are increasingly receptive to that idea and not necessarily requiring people to have PhDs or what-not to teach. That said, Warren Spector has a PhD.”

    Spector observes that the demand for game design programmes is rising, which is leading to increased demand for teaching. The more people are interested, the more schools, universities and colleges will be involved.

    “There are certainly more and more people and institutions that want to be involved because one of the early educators. Henry Jenkins, said once: ‘There was a time when everybody coming to college wanted to become the next Steven Spielberg’. And radio and TV and film departments were bursting at the seams because they had so many students. Now, people want to become the next Will Wright. There are a lot of people interested and that gets colleges and universities interested in a major way. Heck, even the Boy Scouts in the United States have a merit badge for game design, which is amazing to me.”

    20-odd years ago, you’d be lucky to find any college or university offering any game development courses, compared to what USC, UCSC or the Denius-Sams Gaming Academy are offering today. At best, you had to be taught by fellow developers, as Lemarchand was (he studied physics and philosophy at university, then was helped by former colleagues Mike Brunton, Jim Bambra and Steve Hand) or you had to be self-taught, like John Romero.
