Agreed. There are multiple teams of people that work for a game. Game development isn't as black and white so much as there is only "programmers" and "management."There's also many other positions such as art and graphic designers (the artists design most of the artwork for the game, shit like concept art which is then used by people such as 3D designers, graphic designers are also used a lot to make shit like icons for both website and the game itself).You also have animators and 3D designers, which are bloody important people. 3D Designers make all the models (and possibly the textures for those models as well) you see in the game. The artists over at Sons of the Storm ( http://sonsofthestorm.com ) make a lot of the artwork you see in game, and some of it is even turned into 3D models (such as weapons, NPC's, objects like chairs and barrels, etc). Animators are pretty straight-forward, they animate objects that move (character movement, the way cloaks move in the "wind" or how grass waves about, how you look when you attack, etc).I also personally believe the game designers get like one of the hardest jobs. Since these people (*cough* Ghostcrawler *cough*) make a lot of the gameplay structure and rules of the game. You know why that weapon does 151 DPS? Because the game designers wanted it to have that much. You know why that piece of cloth armour gives so much Intellect? Cause they decided it.Also, don't neglect the writers. Bloody important people for a good game too IMO.
