My name is Alec Herzog, I love to play video games. I also like to play baseball and basketball. My goal is to design video games for people to play and enjoy. I have been playing video games for most of my life, and I get so excited to play a new game even to this day. That’s how I want people to feel with they play my games. My choice for the Senior project was to build a gaming computer.
My paper topic is game design. I researched how game design can help education and students. Learning and gaming have a strong connection, when students are playing game they don’t even realize that they are still learning. I also researched on how games can be used in the Medical field. Doctors use games to learn and practice techniques, they’re also being used by recovering patients, too.
For my project, I built a gaming computer. In order to develop and design games you need the proper computer to compile and test your games on. During my research of building my gaming computer I learned about how compatibility is important in motherboards, processors, RAM, and graphics cards. Understanding these are important to game design as you need to know and understand how the game will interact with these components. Different games have different requirements for CPU, RAM, and graphics card.
My topic and research is related to how game design is used in the education and medical fields. This relates to a career in game design as knowing how games are used can affect the types of games you design and develop. I learned that I am really interested in the game design career. I am looking to take a game design course over the summer to make sure this is what I would like to major in college. If I am still interested I will take game design classes at Kennesaw.
I feel that the senior project can help teens like me find a career in the future. Thank you judges for your time reviewing my project and listening to my presentation.
