Gaming is fast picking up as a new (and entirely legitimate) hobby for many people across the globe. Gaming is not only restricted to games designed specifically for PC gaming platforms but also renditions of games (such as popular card and board games) that have existed for centuries. Enthusiasts now play these renditions across the world. Board games like Chess, and card games like Rummy and Teen patti, now have an online presence for their aficionados to challenge one another and play these games.
This does present challenges for some games, where people are still a bit hesitant to pick the game online. How can a virtual environment replicate these exacting statistics and ensure that the game is as authentic as the one that’s played in a non-virtual environment? Many people assume that playing games online is not as rewarding an experience as playing with real people. That statement could have been true a decade back, but with the advent of UX design and gamification, there is hardly any difference now while playing any variety of games with people in person or playing these games online!
UX Design or User Experience Design is a revolutionary new perspective on how to view products which have a powerful utility and functioning online. UX Design intends to consider a product and its function in its entirety and not on a few constructs.
