      Computer scientists are the ones employed to design and create computer games as there is a lot of coding involved. I would count them as engineers even if the title says scientists.

      Hi themehican!

      Sure – the game industry requires people with a working knowledge of programming, geometry, vectors, and transformations to make the software; and of sensors, and electronics to make controllers… all of which are a part of engineering!
