online game designing
I am still a junior in high school and was wondering if making a multiplayer online game is different from designing a regular game like ones you play on playstations. What kind of positions is there for designing a game?
These are just a few examples in a nearly impossible subject to tackle. Explaining the difference between designing any two games in different genres is a difficult proposition, let alone the difference between designing two games in different mega-genres.
As for you second question:
As an MMO level designer I think you have to consider what the area will be used for. There are certainly more different areas in an MMO the there are in a single player shooter.
In WoW you have your cities which are social hubs so you have to remember theres going to be 100s of people in that area. You have to have memorable places etc etc.
in a dungeon you have to consider other things like AOEs, will they aggro other NPCs near the party. layout of structures etc.
A good tip is to go through your favorite game and write down what you see etc. you can even draw out your favorite city in an MMO you play
