Millions of people have dedicated their lives to research and science, developing new and better ways to control the movement of trillions of tiny particles we can't even see, and crafting it over decades into the device you're using today. All that effort, all that dedication, all that time…and now you're using that device to look at memes.
What do the numbers mean mason?!
I love this video!! Thank you for the information
Don't forget Ada Lovelace, the first programmer! 😉
V Sauce, Michael here.
Bro, that was so fascinating!! I didn't expect you to get so deep within those topics, but I am super glad you did!
Really cool you did a video like this
The "How do Videogames Even Work Anyway?" turned out to be a video about "How do Computer Programs Even Work Anyway?, "How do Compilers Even Work Anyway?, "How does Machine Language Even Work Anyway?, "How do Chips [Insert Lays Emoji here] Even Work Anyway?, EVEN ELECTRICITY, IS IT EVEN A VIDEO ABOUT VIDEOGAMES ANYMORE????
Okay, you got back to the point at the end of the video. Amazing! But, Im still mad about it being a video about videogames or electricity.
If you make more content I would be thankful, I find your work amazing… no pressure, take your time master
Title : How do videogames work
Content : Welcome to Computer Science 101
Great video BTW
Great video! I do want to add that, at the highest level, engines are not the only way to make a game. Engines typically have a UI and a program associated. This is what differentiates an engine (like Unity, Unreal, or Godot) from a framework (like Monogame, raylib, or SDL). Frameworks are typically (but not always) a lot lower-level than an engine, and only use code rather than a GUI program. This is a nice way for people who don't really like trying to memorize UI to make games. I personally make games in this way, and I find it very enjoyable.
Wow!!! Bro that's a great video. U got a subscriber. 😀🙌🏻
I almost never have written a comment, but i gotta thank you because this is one of the questions i never got a clear answer for: how do computers and electricity work
Wonderful video, I'm sure it will help many!
Can I call the smilley ball… Gerald? Super intresting video, a nice refresher to think more about computers
I feel like the hard part has never been the making of the game, but the way to render that game. Like you say, game making is not magic. But in relation to making the gameplay, the RENDERING of that game IS magic. Thats why its so easy to use Unity and Unreal, because you don't have to worry about that aspect (at least in terms of the programming of the rendering engine)
Something that was very eye opening to me was watching a video of a guy building a doom-style engine within the factorio game engine..
It's like minecraft redstone, but more sophisticated.
Soo, effectively you get a screen in-game and the screen shows a first person perspective of a camera moving through corridors, opening doors, even interacting with objects.
Was completely mindblown by that.
This came at the perfect time! Getting into my computer science class and I was wishing I could get at least a basic introduction by someone who actually knows how to make videos. This was fantastic and has me hyped! Definitely gonna buy Patch Quest if not only as a thanks, but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it
Semiconductors are not named such because they "sometimes conduct and sometimes don't"; they are named such because they are in a middle-ground between conductive materials and insulating materials. Semi meaning "somewhat".
This good is so good… wish this video go well so you make more like it
This is so cool I love your explanation too
This video is just the embodiement of the rabbit hole. Great work and very nicely explained even though it is hard to try to comprehend the complexity.
The depth of your explanation really depends on what you take as an axiom, a fact that we know is true but "can't be proven".
Your axiom becomes more and more abstract, until it almost reaches the point scientists take as axioms as well.
Having known all of this previously, I think this is a great summery.
You really have mastered knowledge about something if you can make even an outsider with no previous knowledge understand it. That is basically what you did here.
I did enjoy this video. But if you continue to make these kinds of vids (i.e. not related to Patch Quest), do you plan on making a separate Youtube channel to host them on?
