Here’s a look at what’s happening in the video game industry and how you can help.
What’s happening at the moment?
In the past five years, Irish games industry revenue has doubled and more than 1.5 million people have joined the industry in the country, according to figures from the Irish Games Industry Association.
That’s a growth rate of almost 20% over the past decade.
The number of people who play games on mobile devices is on the rise, and is now nearly double the number of those who play them on consoles.
There are currently more than 700 Irish studios and more are on the horizon.
What are games like?
In a video game, players control characters who fight each other, collect weapons and loot, or explore a world.
Games such as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Odyssey are the most popular.
A lot of people like to play with friends and they don’t mind sharing experiences.
Some of the games have become huge successes.
The first-person shooter Call of Duty: Ghosts has sold more than 3.6 million copies worldwide.
The popular online game World of Warcraft, which was founded by Blizzard Entertainment and released in 2011, has seen a massive surge in player numbers.
Some games, like Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth and The Banner Saga, are being developed with more social features in mind.
However, many people still enjoy playing alone, or in small groups.
There’s a sense of community at gaming events, which can be intense.
There have been more than 500 big-name games like Overwatch, League of Legends, and Dota 2 being played this year, according a recent survey by Comscore.
The biggest gaming conventions are now happening around the world.
In Dublin, E3 is taking place in June.
GamesBeat visited Dublin in July to watch the world’s biggest games on stage at the O2 Arena.
This is the first time we’ve seen so many people there at the same time, and we had a fantastic time, said Martin McGuinness, the managing director of games at Comscore Ireland.
There is a sense that people are now at home, and they are enjoying the games in a way that they’ve never enjoyed before.
It’s great to see that the big games are coming in, and the small ones are growing.
