Hey everyone, do any of you clickers want to be professional game developers (artists, coders, musicians) or is game programming just a hobby? Personally I'd like to be a game developer. Here's a quote from another clicker: "The young clickers of today will be the professional game developers of tomorrow"

I'm serious about my game design. Within a few years, I want to go professional. I've been researching a lot on game development the previous year. I even got an interview with one of the designers of Ratchet & Clank at Insomniac Games.

I'll probably get a job as a designer or something close at another professional game company first, though, to get experience.

I wanna go proffesional too. Right now i'm getting an education to become a "data-technician", which doesn't have anything to do with games. Though a game creation education just opened in my country, I'm not going there. But I have great plans to go professional at some time. A bunch of my friends wanna join me in professional game making.

I probably won't go professional with my music. I might use the music i make on my computer, but not the music i play myself (there's not a whole lot of money in the death metal business).

Nah, if the game industry was focused on SNES style 2D graphics I would love to be professionally involved but 99% of the new, 3D games blow so I'd rather not label my name alongside them.

If you're able to make good 2D games, you'd be able to make good 3D games as well..it's the thoughts that count, not the dimension.. But yes, it seems like newer games focus on gfx instead of gameplay..but I think i'd be capable of making a decent 3D game...good for me..

I couldn't make a good 3D game if my life depended on it... I'd be too nervous... duh!

Good point Ashman... Why does Secret Of Mana rule over the 3d crap released today? (Ok, it's not crap but I'm just saying, 2D can still kick 3D's ass when it comes to gaming).

It'd be excellent to go professional, or even semi-professional (making games from home / your own small business) but you have to be good at making games. I was playing my 300 Arcade games CD last night and some of the absolute CRAP released as shareware is laughable.

P.s. I hear the best way to 'get your foot' in the door is to become a beta tester...

P.P.s Codemaster are hiring any beta testers for their upcoming game (something about a dragon)...

i'll probably become a systems analyst or something along those dreary-sounding lines. webdesign would be good too but i'm not seriously considering anything game related. i'm not good enough .

My brother is a polygraphic designer and c++ base coder for Blue monkey Studio's in london, he earns up to 200k a year which is quite a lot if you ask me..

He knows 14+ programming languages, including c, c++ j+ etc..

Oh and he's being coding since he was 7, he's 22 now, lol

So as you can see, its best to start off young, and the rewards in the future are quite great heh..

This thread reminds me why the Gba is so great. It encourages companies to make new 2D games...like the Castlevania games for the Gba. They kick ass ! and they're all new...apart from that, all the Mode7 "3D" games I've seen for the Gba were more or less sucky...
