This generation is know as the 32 or 64 bit generation. It is also known as the 3D generation.
Generation 5 occurred in the mid 90’s with several consoles released. The most successful being the Sony Play Station.
Consoles were powerful enough the do true 3D effects, such as, shadows, shading, and texturing.
Other highlights are:
- CD-ROMs replace cartridge
- move from 2D to 3D graphics
- the emergence of Sony as the leader in consoles
- Nintendo held on to the handheld market with the release of Game Boy Color.

Technical writing skills are critical in Video Game Design careers. Communication is the most important skill for the game designer and being able to write well is a must. Proper spelling, punctuation, and grammar are necessary.
Today you will watch a short video about being a Video Game Designer and then write about what you saw focusing on skills needed to be a game designer.
In Word write one page (font size 11, double spaced, and default margins) about what skills are important if you want to be a game designer, what are your strengths, and what are your challenges (what do you need to focus on)?
Scoring will focus on good grammar, spelling, punctuation, and organization of ideas.
Save your document to OneDrive. You will submit this to Schoology when you are done.
This week we will continue to do some benchmark exercises and start Classcraft.
