comment Creating a glitch effect similar to Watch Dogs
@teodron "The real question is: what would you use it for?" I think the answer to this "real" question can be found in the original question. "a skill a game programmer should have" not everyone limits themselves to skills they "should" have. "So, if a AAA doesn't do it, why would you?" In many ways, this way of thinking slows down progress. In conclusion, the only relevant information your comment brings is "bending your brain to come up with the shader processing pipeline to achieve it" which is no information at all.

comment Text-based game using JavaScript and/or PHP
Don't use fancy frameworks just for the sake of it. Also, have a look at this for a ready-made javascript console: openexchangerates.github.io/javascript-sandbox-console There might be others, as I remember using a different one, but this is the one I found with a quick search.

comment What is the story of game programmers beside gaming history?
"You look at the power of machines in the past with the ability to compare them to machines today." I believe it was easier back then, since you only had to support one processor architecture, with one ASM manual which contained EVERYTHING you needed to know. Nowadays you have layers upon layers of abstractions, a lot of different processors and operating systems, people who are experts in networking, graphics, design, etc.

comment Can I sell my minecraft clone?
Actually, Minecraft is a "clone" itself. Read more about it here: minecraft.gamepedia.com/Infiniminer Also, games like Terraria sell pretty well.

comment AAA quality game UI kit
Luke San Antonio: I'm guessing he asks whether there are websites which provide PSDs of UI layouts, the same way some websites provide PSDs for web layouts. He's looking for UI templates.

comment Why don't C++ Game Developers use the boost library?
@Leif Andersen if i'm not mistaken stdlib.h used to be the C standard library header before C++ was standardized. Now it's cstdlib ( without .h ). cplusplus.com/reference/cstdlib

comment Why don't C++ Game Developers use the boost library?
@Tetrad STL is not boost, and STL is heavily used in gamedev.

comment PHP Browser Game Question - Pretty General Language Suitability and Approach Question
@JimBadger Having expressive code ( eg well named functions that only perform what their name suggests ) is much better than cluttering code with ( soon to be outdated ) comments.

comment 3D Character Development
The blender game engine isn't all that good, and I haven't seen anyone using it. There are plenty of free graphics and game engines out there like Unity, Unreal, Cryengine, etc.

This would only work for convex objects ( like a rectangle ) whose origin is at it's geometric center.
