How Science Can Improve Video Games

Kombo: There are a few buzzwords in the games industry at the moment, but one of the more interesting ones to come out of GDC was "User Experience" or UX. I have links to the UX sector myself, and consider this area of ensuring game quality as hugely important. I believe that, like the recent dramatic improvement in the localization work on games over the last 5 years, QA also needs a shot in the arm – perhaps administered by the cutting edge of UX research.

The story is too old to be commented.

It is just what science (and engineering) has been doing since gaming exists (among many other things, of course). Micro-processors, memory, renderers, digital data storage, encoders, networking, Artificial Intelligence, virtual physics, software engineering, interface engineering, compiler optimization, multithreading, debug management... endless.
