Have you ever thought about helping to make games instead of just playing them?
There are nearly 2,000 games firms in the UK but it's not always an obvious career choice.
At the UK's biggest gaming event EGX there's a dedicated area to help future developers and designers.
And some of the experts have been sharing their top tips with Newsbeat.
Tip 1: Be passionate and communicate well
James says: "Find out which gaming companies are near you and engage with them on Twitter and Facebook.
"Talk to companies in a way that proves you love what they do. They are more likely to talk to you if you say that you loved a game because of this level or that level.
"It shows not only are you interested in them but you've got some passion about you and that goes a long way."
Tip 2: Don't wait for job adverts
James' next piece of advice is to: "send people your CV and show you're interested in them whether they've got a job going or not.
"Research is key. That's not only for the companies you're interested in and what they do. You should also research who you should speak with.
"The worst thing they can do is say no."
Tip 3: Get modding
James explains that: "modding" is huge part of gaming now.
"The system called Steam has an element on it called Steam Workshop where you can go in and fiddle with game code, create new maps, levels and characters.
"If you create a map and publish it on a network like that and a bunch of people like it, then that really stands out.
"It adds to your CV and it adds to the story you're telling."
Tip 4: Gaming needs you!
James says: "you don't need to be a physicist or a mathematician to work in gaming.
"We need people across a whole broad range of careers.
"Things like sales, HR, design, artwork, drama students for motion capture.
"We need business analysts, people who are just really good at Facebook and Youtube.
"You need a huge range of people to make a game"
Tip 5: Never give up
James tells us that gaming is "a tough business to get into."
He adds: "If you just expect to fall into the games industry, get a job and be successful then that's not going to happen.
"It's a lot of hard work so be prepared and never give up."
