How does video game make people rich?#BCM215

Today, with the developed economy and technology. There are so many ways for people to enjoy with threw media.Video game, a term which is familiar with most of people. There are approximately 2.2 billion gamers in the world, people spend so much time on video game. Video game was designed for people to have fun and relax, when people playing video game, they can “escape” from real world, and enter to a virtual world. In virtual world people have no pressure from real life, they can enjoy and do a lots of things that you can not do in real life which is also a kind of mental reset.

However, like I mentioned before, video game was designed for letting people relax and have fun. 20 years ago, no one can imagine that video game will become one of the biggest industry in world business. Video game can even make people rich. Somebody may be questionable about it, how can you make money by sit at home and earn money? In this semester with my BCM215 DA, I will explain the answer to people who are curious with game industry.

I will post video on YouTube start with this week, and also post blog on WordPress. I will divide my DA with two parts, in the first part I will introduce some games which are the most popular video game in recent 10 years, second part will be how does these game make people rich. I am really excited with my DA cause I am a big fans with video game and I got huge passion on it. See you all in my next YouTube video and blog post, please feel free to leave comment.


  1. Hey there, Sheng, I’ve read and watched your project pitch, and first of all to start with I have to say I liked how you explained exactly what your media format for this Digital Artefact will be. You mentioned you will be using Twitter, WordPress and YouTube in the process, which I think is great as you will be able to create two more videos, giving you a chance to display a creative production, featuring visual aspects of your favourite video games and introduce to the audience how exactly these videos games are making people wealthier in current society.

    I like the topic you’re following here, but I am a little confused with what exactly it is you’re researching…
    Let me break it down for you:

    – As much as you have described your media format really well I think I would have just added some sources you’ve already found into your blog post to help guide your artefact in the future, as well as identifying what you exactly plan on discovering in this topic.

    – You stated your own personal experience with playing video games in both your video and blog (which is great, as personal interest is at the height of what topic you have decided to discuss within Game Media), but at the same time you mentioned in your blog that you want to show your audience how exactly video games can make individuals more wealthy, but within your video you didn’t mention this at all, and I just got a little confused at the actual purpose of your Digital Artefact.

    I believe you just need to be little more concise in your project plan, try making your idea or question more specific and clearer to really help us, as the audience, understand what exactly you intend to do. Which is either allowing us to understand how exactly video game users can become rich, or if your love and interest for video games can bring wealth and growth, and potentially a young individual a successful career!

    Also try working on your spelling and grammar, just as some words have been written wrong and tend to have a wrong meaning to what you’re originally trying to say, as well as full stops and commas being used in the wrong way.

    I also have some tips which may help you out with your topic;

    – You could think about it from this perspective, to identify if some video games are just being created through manipulation or have been stolen and copied by companies and owners in order to gain more money?

    – Or you could look at this idea from another angle, such as how millennials in the 21st century are simply becoming rich from their bedrooms, all due to video games, creating a new phenomenon in the gaming industry. That could become another factor in your DA that presents this idea that Video games are allowing teenagers new light in our society to become immensely wealthy at such a young age in the 21st century.

    Here’s an article that provides some examples and insight into how kids like us, who are 18 or 17 have become billionaires, forging out new solutions, using innovative skills and their university degrees to create video games and manifest their skills in beating some of the world’s biggest gamers. I think this information and the real-life examples of the millennials in the article, who have become billionaires in the gaming industry will add a clearer and more concise twist to your DA.

    Check it out!

    And good luck with the Artefact!
