DETERMINING FACTORS, DESIRABLE PERSONALITY TRAITS AND SKILLSETS
Most video game designers gravitate toward the creative spectrum of aptitude rather than the technical, although highly successful designers will have a knack for both. The creative nature of the job role means recruiters should not limit candidates to technical or computer science degrees. A history major, for example, may be entirely appropriate for a game set in a specific historical time. Knowledge and experience are more important than educational categories.
