8. Video Game Artist
Since we were just talking about video game artists: artistic and creative people are needed here, as they set the scenes of a game along with the storytellers. Depending on the game, more drawing skills or good use of motion capture programs may be required.
9. Video Game Designer
Naturally, there must also be people who have an overview of the conception of video games. While other jobs are also important in game design, the video game designer is at the forefront. To have the necessary understanding, video game designers must also have knowledge of programming, design, or the artistic design of a game, as they may need to work in all these areas.
10. Video Game Developer
The video game developer is responsible for implementing the designer's ideas. However, this does not mean that they are only involved in programming, as with the designer, it may well be that a developer has to help out in many different areas.
