Top Gaming Software Companies

Top Gaming Software Companies

There’s a lot that goes into building a successful gaming career. You want your content to be streamlined, easy to produce, and enjoyable for your audience. In order to achieve this, every gaming influencer needs the right software.

In recent years, gaming software companies have optimized their products to fit the growing market of content creators. There are many different types of software required for success, such as editing software, streaming software, and collaborative software. Here, SYFT.GG will give you recommendations for the best gaming software you should be using to build your career.

SteelSeries

SteelSeries is a gaming software and hardware company whose main focus has been to manufacture effective gaming peripherals that allow a more connected experience while gaming. They are widely known for their headsets and keyboards, but many are unaware of the power of their software developments.

The company was first created in Denmark in 2001 and has been a leader in gaming components since the very beginning. Their first innovation in the gaming sphere was a glass mousepad known as the Icemat. They pride themselves on being one of the first sponsors of esports events and professional teams/players. Though they are known mainly for their gaming peripherals, they have also developed some of the best gaming software for pro gamers.

SteelSeries has developed a clipping software called Moments, which allows gamers to program a hotkey that will clip an epic in-game achievement without a distracting overlay or any delay at all. All of these clips are saved to the software and are easily trimmed and edited in-app with a variety of options, including GIF overlays for entertainment value.

With Moments, your clips can be shared easily to any social media site, including YouTube and Reddit. Since they are all saved to the platform and can be tagged to make them easily searchable, this is one of the best software for creating gaming montages. Label all of your team-wipes or sniper kills and combine them later to create an awesome montage of epic moments.

Razer

Like SteelSeries, Razer is a gaming company that focuses on creating a streamlined gaming ecosystem with software and hardware components that work in concert. Razer was founded in 2005 and is dual-headquartered in California and Singapore. They have won a host of awards, including Best of CES for 7 years in a row.

What sets Razer apart is the number of services they offer. They sell every piece of gaming hardware imaginable, but their software services are what make them so special. Their software platform has over 125 million users, including tens of thousands of downloads of the incredible Razer Cortex system.

Razer Cortex is one of the best gaming software services on the market, optimizing your gaming experience with higher frame rates and faster load times. An advanced AI automatically streamlines the settings by customizing them to your specific system, so you don’t have to do a thing. Just download and enjoy the speed. 

Cortex also gives you access to a paid-to-play rewards program where gaming on your PC earns you Razer Silver, a currency that can be redeemed for a variety of Razer products, including hardware and games.

OBS

Internet personalities around the world have been using Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) for their video recording and streaming needs since 2012. Gaming influencers are no exception. It is currently the most popular streaming software on the market and is open source, making it free to download and use.

OBS was developed as a solo project by Hugh “Jim” Bailey, who was later offered a 7-figure deal to sell the rights to OBS, which Bailey declined. Because of this, OBS remains free and open-source software for live streaming and video recording. It is constantly being updated to keep up with changes in technology.

OBS Studio is the software that most streamers use because it offers a variety of customizable configurations that make it easy to create highly watchable content. Gamers can create different “scenes” that they can seamlessly switch between depending on how they want their screen to look. For example, you can have a scene specifically for loading screens that shows more of your face than you would for gameplay scenes.

Gaming Software

Other features like the audio mixer and layout editor work together with the scene changer and make it easy to put out a high-quality stream. Audiences will see your content as professional and well put together, which will increase your fanbase.

Discord

Discord is one of the most widely acknowledged gaming software companies out there. It is a voice-over IP (VoIP), instant messaging, and digital distribution platform that was originally designed with gamers in mind. It now has 250 million registered users, not all of them gamers, with communities for just about every interest you could imagine.

The founders of Discord (Jason Citron and Stanislav Vishnevsky) had both been mildly successful in the development of other social gaming platforms. They joined forces in 2012 and began working on gaming projects. Citron noticed that the development process was hindered by ineffective VoIP software, and came up with the idea for a chat service that wouldn’t impact game performance, but allow players to communicate more easily.

Discord launched in May 2015 and was quickly adopted by the gaming community as the new way to communicate live with their teammates. Today, most top gaming influencers use Discord to collaborate with other content creators because of how well-established and trusted the platform is. You too can impress your friends with your gaming montages using Discord as the distribution app.

Valve

Valve creates some of the best gaming software in the world, mostly related to game development. They have developed such smash hit games as Half-Life (widely considered one of the best PC games ever), DOTA, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Half-Life was Valve’s debut title, released in 1998. It won more than 50 “Game of the Year” awards in that year. Many of Valve’s other titles have won significant awards as well. However, the thing that sets Valve apart is not the games they’ve created, but the platform known as Steam.

Steam gives gaming influencers access to almost 30,000 games, ensuring that there will be no end to the content you can create. Not only do you get access to this wealth of existing content and early access to new games, but if you are an aspiring game developer yourself, you can release your game on Steam using their tools and services. A gaming career can merge with a game development career for the right individuals.

Conclusion

Now that you know some of the best gaming software companies out there, you are ready to take advantage of their software services to boost your gaming career. SYFT.GG recommends a combination of these services to get the most out of them: use OBS for streaming, Moments for clipping, Discord for collaborating, etc. With these tools at your disposal, your career as a gaming influencer is bound to take off.
