If you follow games, then you hear about game engines all the time, especially with different game trailers trying to hype up their tech and with different beautiful graphic visuals floating around the internet. We hear a lot about advanced engines creating hyper-realistic triple-A games, but what do they really do? Does a better engine make a better game?

Putting all this together, a game engine presents a set environment for game development. It is a platform on top of which games, simulations, 3-D models, and movies are developed. Sometimes, only one or a combination of multiple game engines are used by game developers, which has the ability to bring a virtual vision to virtual reality.
