They want to know what game software you're familiar with. Are you familiar with all genres or just rpgs, racing, fps, sports, et cetera? Do you know games on all platforms or just on the ps3 or pc or ds?


It's exactly as it's worded. What game software knowledge do you have?

It's funny how this is required info on the application but you can't ever get an employee who plays anything other than Mass Effect.

I rarely get employees that actually play games. Most I know just play Bejewled.

In all respect, I'd ask the same question if I were applying. Reading "Game Software" I immediately thought of programs like Autodesk's 3DS Max Studios, VUE and the lightwave 3D. Not video game genres or platforms.

The question may be exactly as it's worded to some, or even the majority of people, but it can confuse just as many others.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:
