In India, most of our families have always considered GAMING as just a part of entertainment, and think that it has no more scope outside the field of fun. Choosing GAMING as a career or a source of income has always been considered as a taboo in the Indian community.
Most of us have grown up stuck in front of a screen playing our favorite games from Mario to Vice City to PUBG,spending hours and hours of our time enjoying these fun games. Whilst us enjoying most of our families have always considered it a waste of time just like most of the other things we have been doing. “ Why are you wasting your time? These games are not going to bring any good to your lives! Think about your future, Are these going to bring you your daily bread? “ All of us have grown up listening to these taunts, but most of us have heard this from one year and let these words out the other ear.
Seems like the time has been changing lately,and the new generation finally has a lot of answers to these taunts. YESSS! Gaming can earn, and to be honest more than just bread!
In the last couple of years gaming has taken a serious boost,with competitive gaming market being valued at Billions of Dollars!
What are the possible Careers in Gaming?
We all know that our generation has never been very skeptical on making a choice on our futures. From travelling to being a chef or even gaming. This generation is breaking all the stereotypes and doing what they love.
One thing that hasn’t changed since years is people reading the latest word about things they like. We all follow different blogs and organizations related to gaming where we read about the latest announcements and new things about the community. Then,why not become a part of it? A journalist gets to attend different gaming conferences all over the world,gets their hands on the latest gadgets and obviously the latest gaming titles. Who wouldn’t love this job,right? Well, to be honest, this is not how it really is. A person has to work really hard to be a journalist. You have to keep your eyes open all the time for all kinds of news,from the smallest game updates to the biggest gaming events like E3 ( Electronic Entertainment Expo)
This is really a good choice for the future,as it even lets us be open to different areas of journalism. One can be involved in different fields such as Movie Industry,Electronics,Cars etc.
Game tester has to be on the list of the most fun jobs in the entire world. They get to play all the latest games,and this is not limited just to the latest games,but they also get a chance to test anything new in the market of Gaming. From new peripherals to weird gadgets,they enjoy everything. Just imagine, getting your hands on the games and gadgets which the world has not even seen till now. You will be among the firsts on the planet to see the products.
Again, one has to work hard to play harder. A tester should have abundant knowledge of everything related to gaming, a tester has to produce a detailed report on if the game is delivering upto the mark or not. He/She has to let the developers know if there are any bugs that have been interfering with the fun of the GAMERZ. Also, any glitches in the game have to be mentioned which can be used by Nuisance creating unsocial elements in the games for unfair means to win the game.
With the rise of the internet, it has opened hundreds of new career options for our generation and for the coming one. One of the most popular career options becoming an online streamer. The World Wide Web has multiple popular options for game streaming, YouTube and Twitch being the most popular of them all. The video streaming market has been one of the fastest growing markets in the current world valued to be more than a HUMONGOUS $20 Billions. Yes, you heard it right!!
With professional streamers like Shroud from C9 Gaming and Ninja minting millions through ad revenue and other sources,Indian streamers like Carry Minati (Who’s dedicated gaming Channel is- CarryIsLive) and Soul-Mortal (The Indian PUBGM God) and many others leaving their mark on Game Streaming and encouraging literally hundreds of other dreamers to make it big just like them.
Most of us have been shut up by our parents saying “Kitna bolta he,Chup Hoja ab (Why do you talk so much,shut up for a while). Now it's time to use useless habit to make money. You may not know commentators make a really good amount of money.They also get to travel to the locations of the events. Being a commentator requires you to be fluent in the language your audience likes, also you need to be handy with key facts of the game and other statistics related to the game and the players.We have grown up listening to commentary for our favorite sports,all of us know how important it is in making a game more interesting and how it is actually a part of the game. This aspect is what makes it a viable working idea in the industry which can keep you close to the love of your life-GAMING and also make you money on the other side.
All of us know what competitive gaming,but for the few ones who don’t (What are you doing here brother? Okay,let us help you out, read our weekly blogs and you’ll belong with us)
Competitive gaming is just like any other part of our lives (The truth has been spoken), number of players play against each other and try to win the game. Competitive gaming is mostly played among professional players in professional gaming leagues. Where players try to win the title which is the key to a handsome cash prize. Don’t make the mistake of thinking this cash prize as your local tournament prize. These prizes are enough for you to buy a legit SPORTS CAR, yes I am talking about all the Audis and BMWs you have always fancied driving. In the recent Fortnite World Championship, a teen gamer with the name Kyle Giersdorf won a winning amount of 3 Million USD, yes 20 Crore Rupees.
As usual,big bucks do not come easy, competitive gaming as the name suggests is extremely competitive and hard to win. Imagine playing against the best players around the world. This is the level where gaming doesn’t remain to your level of gaming. One has to make strategies against their opponents, spend hours in training yourselves and making yourself better than before. If you want to see what it its like- Just check out a few videos with players like Shroud and the likes of Kenny Schrub (Hail the AWP King)
