I'm finishing a masters in finance and all I want is to stay at home and try to live off of gamedev. I've inherited about 100k recently so money wouldn't be a problem for quite a while but my gf is working her 5 days a week at her definitive job and I don't want to make her afraid that I'll never work or make money.
I feel like I cheated her by telling her (and myself) that I'd work a good job in finance but this field seems too soul-crushing for me. Meanwhile I'm at home learning about code, modeling, texturing, animating, design, music, lightning...It's so great and some people on here (strangers) told me I have potential but not going directly for interviews out of college seems like a professional death trap. If I would try working on gamedev at home for a year or two, would it be possible to go back to corporations and interview as if nothing had happened? Or will they disqualify me on the basis that "I didn't really want this job at first"?
