My son really wants to be a game designer. He's taking computer programming courses right now while also doing online schooling for videogame development. He is his own man, so far be it from me to tell him what to do, but every time I read an article such as this I send it to him.
The videogame industry is brutal, thankless, and unrewarding for all but a select lucky few.
