How is a Video Game created by codes and functions?

Post  sohel2010 on Sat Jul 24, 2010 3:52 am

I am having THE hardest time wrapping my head around the idea that long strings of functions and codes, written in C++ and other computer languages, are able to create a video game... Can someone please describe to me how strings of codes are able to translate into a 3D environment in a video game??? Or even just a 3 dimensional object for that matter. I COMPLETELY do not understand how this works. Please help me conceptually understand how video game programming works. Thanks.

I have done software development for years now, but not anything comparable to gaming. However, I think you have the basic concept - long strings of code. The programmer basically has to write each instruction, not much different than animation where the artist draws each sketch and then puts them together. I'm pretty sure that there are many developers involved in the making of a single game.
