Been in the game industry for 17 years now, through ups and downs, but I can't imagine doing anything else.

In the end, I think many of us find it is part of who we are rather than what we do. I would be designing games even if I wasn't hired to do so. Hell, I _was_ designing games before I was hired to do so - not because I thought it would lead to a job (I honestly fell into it as a profession), but because it is just something I do and have always done, like an artist or musician.

I consider myself lucky to get paid to do what I do, even with the crunches and bad cycles and everything else.I can't imagine working a normal desk job. It makes me cringe.

As far as the "reviews" on Glassdoor? No thanks. It stinks of the old Fatbabies discontent to me. Many of those people are the same people that would be angry no matter where they worked...
