Video game development may sound like a fun job but in fact it takes a lot of dedication and hard work to come out with game design that will be enjoyed by many. There are no video games that are produced by just one individual. There will be a whole team of employees working on the game design. This team will include designers, artists, programmers and game testers. There are several companies who are currently at the top of the gaming industry when it comes to producing the best games available on the market.
Electronic Arts was founded in 1982 and is currently at the top of the industry when it comes to game design. This company currently creates and distributes software for computers, internet, and video game consoles worldwide. Perhaps one of their most popular games is The Sims. Electronic Arts also carries an extensive line of sporting games including Madden Football games for all platforms. In addition to sporting games the company creates games in all popular genres including: racing, shooting, RPG, kids, puzzle, and strategy.
