NPD Group estimates that, in 2009, the video game industry generated $19.66 billion in revenue and, with the emergence of mobile gaming through smartphones, one expects that this trend will continue to show impressive growth.

Many who are looking to earn their video game design degree may be unsure of where to start their search, but The Princeton Review has recently named the best schools for budding software developers.

Number one on the list was the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, a ranking that the school earned last year as well.

"We're just very excited about where the program is going," Elizabeth Daley, the dean of USC's School of Cinematic Arts, told USA Today.

The University of Utah came in second and DigiPen Institute of Technology in Washington came in third.

When it comes to graduate programs, USC-LA is still number one. Then, it's University of Central Florida in Orlando, followed by Southern Methodist University in Plano, Texas.

This represents the second year that The Princeton Review has released its list of top video game design schools, due to a boom in the degree's availability, the news source reports.
