What kind of math did Mojang, Elon Musk, and Genshin Impact use? Top games and top startups have good algorithm design and good math, right? Is mastery over calculus the move for me?

Physics and engineering, both real and simulated (in games) require a ton of different mathematics (that goes for Minecraft, Genshin Impact, SpaceX and Tesla). If you are interested in doing anything like that, you will want a strong understanding of Calculus. Games and Startups also both require problem solving skills beyond mathematics. Games require deep programming knowledge, and startups require business decision making and market analytics.

Calculus is a great place to start, be sure to balance that with other pieces to help you achieve your goals.
