We love to play any game. Inside the console game like Playstation, we find some interesting games like God of War, Marvel's Spiderman, Grand Theft Auto 5. Likewise on the mobile platform or smartphone, we will find some of the best games, like Among Us, Fortnite, Genshin Impact and etc.

 

In the game created by the developer, they have made a simulation or tutorial on how the game is played, then there is also a part where the dubbing and subtitles, its have been filled in in the game. All of these have been included in the game, so the gamers feel comfortable and understand the game.

 

We know, the gaming activities is fun but we also learning from that. So, we will focus on dubbing, subtitles and language settings. Then, what if the game that we play, our main language is not there? How can we play it? So, we have enough difficulty in finding their functions.

 

Basically, a game that has been known is popular or is considered successful to poison a gamer, they have a lot of language choices. The developer has thought about it because they know that many gamers like it. In addition, they also have missions so that their artificial games are better known by everyone.

 

However, this isn’t all games are planned like that. We take an examples, in the Dynasty Warrior game at beginning, Chinese language dominates the game and no options available for us. Then, there are Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja games dominated by Japanese language, we also have difficulty in finding various settings because our language knowledge is limited.

 

 

However, there is one thing that makes us unite, it is English language. Unlike Chinese and Japanese, English is easier to learn and more universal if we compare with both languages. So, this language is more suitable to be included in various games.

 

For games in English language, it usually made by developers who have root or great native English speakers. We take an examples, such as famous publisher game like Electronic Arts Sports (or EA Sports), they will provide various languages in their settings. The main language used is English, (because the developer using that language). Even so I believe, there are also some Chinese and Japanese games that are friendly for English gamer or anywhere in the world, so we can also try those game from both countries.

Well, we have questions that need to be answered. Why English language is important in a game? We will answer like two sides of the currency or money coin. From the developer sides, they want the games that they make it can be understood by everyone, functioning properly.  Then, when the game succeeds well in their regional targets, they will expand to more countries with the aim of more exposure and the profit running. At this time, with technological advance and development, I think there are already more languages available, so the translator work becomes increasing, especially for the gaming industry, due to the impact of globalization.   

 

From the end user or gamer sides, learning English isn’t only to understand a game. But they also improve their English skills through cognitive aspects. For example, when they try to run the game tutorial, they try to remember what mission needs to be done. So they do step by step until the mission is complete and so on. Play games can relieve our stress. But also, we learn to understand that we learn another world or other languages, outside the context of everyday indirectly.

 

The conclusion, if the developer understands the market and if a gamer doesn’t only concern the pleasure and want to learn anything, English language in a console game or smartphone game can benefit for both sides.

I don't play but I can relate this to watching movies with subtitles or anime for example. We pick up some words and learn from it with the help of the subtitles.
