I was a gamer before writing stories was part of my job, and I don't have any official background as a writer, so I see myself more as a game designer that writes than a writer that designs games. I wouldn't say you need a lot of technical knowledge to be successful. Of course, you must have some computer literacy and be able to use whatever tools you use in your work, but don't let any of that stop you if you want to write for the game industry. I know people who are great at their jobs (writing, art, designing) who aren't wiz-kids with technical "mumbo-jumbo."
