I play a moderate to light amount of video games. And my play as well as knowledge gets lighter and lighter as I don't have time for it anymore. But I am very interested in working for game companies. I figure that it doesn't matter that much. But I'm just curious, how important is the amount of video games you play, particularly from the company you're applying to, to your qualification for the job?
I understand you ought to have basic knowledge of the company and games just as you would for any. But is the experience with the games themselves important to whether or not you get hired?
