    lol..when you see it plastered across your TV screen every hour of every day you come to realize that the market is severely flooded with "game developers"

    That's why you don't go for 'degrees' that actually have the word Game in them, she should have gone for a computer science degree, then not only would she have been qualified to design games, she would be qualified for a lot of other jobs and wouldn't have gotten stuck stripping.

    And this is the reason I do Application Programming/engineering, instead of game design.

    That sucks, she just fucked up her life. I'm sure that there would be plenty of other opportunities if she tried harder... [​IMG]

    What a sad ending... albeit slightly tragic-comic.

    (Of course, I just went for general computer science, since I want to aid others, not just make games. Sure, making games is an aid, but I am thinking more widely.)

    I wonder how many new visits Lido Cabaret will get now that this news is out?

    This is exactly what I did. I enrolled at my college as a game design/development major but when I went to register for my classes, I signed up for classes so I can get a Computer Science degree because I could still develop games AND I'd have something to back me up in case it doesn't go well for me. Cause with a CS degree, you can pretty much do anything that is related to computers.

    Tough, that what happens when you have a few college students who thinks its easy to get a job. That's why getting something like a editor, engineering, computers, electronics is a wise investment
