Lack of Opportunities in Indian Gaming Industry
The gaming industry is growing all over the world day by day. Compared to the past few years, the numbers of gamers have remarkably increased in India. However, Indian gaming communities are awful.
If examined in other countries such as Japan, Korea, etc. you will notice their accomplished gaming culture, as well as the top communities in the world, belong to those countries. So let’s dig into the reasons behind India’s absence in the gaming industry.
Movies or sports over gaming
Indians are considering movies, TV shows, they also travel frequently, but when it comes to gaming, unfortunately, they don’t really care. They don’t know that the gaming industry is more extensive than movie making. The fact is, gaming productions need much more effort to compose a game.
In India, most people are unaware of gaming. We watch cricket and football matches all day with patience and we also follow all the leagues and tournaments, but we don’t do the same with gaming.
After all, we love enjoyment, but we don’t consider gaming as our primary entertainment. So we should definitely change our thinking and adopt the rich gaming culture.
Parent’s Perception of Gaming
Regarding the mindset of our parents, they don’t know about games. You can also define it as the generation gap. According to our parents, only kids play games. However, they don’t know the possibilities and future of gaming. That’s why they don’t let their kids play games or establish a career as a gamer.
Parents have the wrong thinking that games make their child violent. Apart from that, our parents don’t introduce us to games like they do with movies and sports. Therefore, Indian kids don’t connect with games during their childhood.
After all, the effect of the generation gap is decreasing day by day and the new generation parents are introducing their kids with games.
We need expensive PCs, consoles and superior internet connection to be a professional-gamer. However, many Indians can’t afford these. However, nowadays Indians can afford a smartphone easily and start playing games on our phones. In the meantime, many big game developers are establishing games for the smartphone.
2020: the up and coming year for gaming
Online gaming has gained a strong foothold within the Indian entertainment industry. With a projected user base of more than 628 million gamers, this gives a whole new boost to the gaming ecosystem within the Indian economy. This ecosystem consists of gamers of all ages, game developers and designers, investors and marketers all working together to come up with the latest cutting edge games, concepts and offers for players. All this interest and potential makes India one of the top gaming markets amongst emerging global economies.
