The game industry has come a long way from board games to extensive multi-player games with impressive graphics. Game developers create games for people’s enjoyment. Big Data is a larger set of data that reveals set of patterns, trends, human behavior and interactions, so with the use of big data it plays a very important role with the gaming industry. It is used to collect the information about the gamers to keep them engaged of that particular game and use that data to help make the game better. Python is a well-known programming language that big data scientist uses to hold the big data. ?By learning to code with python we created a hangman game and a word counter to count the words in a text file. We are aimed in this paper to discuss the reasons and benefits for game developers to learn the python programming and understand the use of the Big Data in game development.
