How important is knowing SQL in game development?

Hi guys. Simple question.

How important is knowing SQL in game development? And if it is used at all, what kind of games is it generally used in?

Thank you.

Hello jwoods141

SQL usage in games is really dependand on the project you are making. Usually it is used to store player and world related data in a multiplayer games, like MMO games. It’s not neccessary to use SQL if you are building singleplayer game. But still even for a singleplayer game you could use a database for example to store the highscores of the players and create a leaderboard.

SQL usage depends only on your goals.

If you’re looking for some useful coding-stuff training service, the codingsight site is definitely for you. There are a lot of articles about different programming languages, databases and even assembler! The most basic techniques are described in accessible language. i recently searched for an article where the pretty obvious thing was described, the size of the data in the alocation of variables. it would seem obvious, but only here it was described clearly and understandable. so the service is perfect for beginners and advanced users! Highly recommended
