It's hard to design video games.

Answer # 1 #

The early conceptual design is fun.Everybody likes doing that.I offer workshops about it.People love themselves a lot.That's about half of the work.You have to prototype them, test them, tune them, build them, build them, test them, tune them, for months and months and months.Fight with the marketing department to prevent them from ruining your game.

It is not easy with a good team but it is fun.

Ho ho!It's a difficult question.Think about how many times Hideo Kojima failed in the 90s and finally came up with something like Metal Gear when he was on the verge of being fired.At the end of the day, players never know what they really want, so they feedback about what they think they want.It is hard to design video games that appeal to the mass.

Yes, at least somewhat.Due to the modelling, world design and coding, it takes a lot of time to design a game.
