>wasted the last 10 years learning to make games because it was my passion as a kid
>now that I've become old I no longer give a fuck about playing games and the worst of all, I started to care more about money

pls tell me some good stories of people making money (not millions) by developing games.

any tip?

I just need motivation.

I don't want to be rich, just more than 10k a year will be enough in my taco shithole.

You mean tiu spent 10 years PLAYING games?

Two very different things.

Notch is a billionaire btw

>>1091259
man in 10 years you could have focused on how to do one specific thing (model textures, animating, coding, etc.) well enough to get an actual job at it at a game studio.

>>1091259
Just make games and sell them to losers.

motivation is fucking nothing

NOTHING

all that matters is your ability to grind

you cant grind since you're here posting this shit

any motivation lasts for a day to a week at the most and then its the grind again

get the fuck away from game design its a shit career and everybody but the top has awful jobs

not only that but its being taken over by political correctness and sjws in the workplace. enjoy carrying those fucking diversity hires.

take your skills, I pray to fucking god you can code, and get a real job

> Feels bretty good man!

We need people like you, same as my autistic cousin who started games design course, while I dropped out of a shitty Physics grad course and doing my CFA.

In 10 years time, I will be his boss.
>>
>>1091264
Pretty much this.

Make a shitty ripoff of some indie game nobody heard of from the 80s or 90s, reuse the textures or make similar graphics, make it repetitive and addictive, stock it with ads and incentives to keep playing and put it out on mobile. Get it viral on Youtube and soon you'll be making $80,000 a day.
>>
>>1091682
why? those are both valuable skills. besides making games, modelling is good for 3d printing , and programming is good for all sorts of things

>Makes himself educated by 10 years on a few skills.
>Never puts them to use.
The only waste here is your motivation and attitude. Give my 10-year-old those skills and I guarantee you'll have yourself either a great game in a year or two, or the youngest code/3D monkey in the industry.

As a cis hetero white male in first year programming classes in bayfag, cuckifornia, what specific area in computers should I go for and how fucked am I?

Boring mindnumbing repetition doesn't bother me, especially if I'm getting paid "well",

The internet of things will crash spectacularly. Either be the one crashing it or the one they call for help at 200k per year.

Dude, people make $10k a month on patreon for making shitty fetish rpgmaker games. Crank your dignity down a few levels, find a half decent artist, and start pandering

if you know how to make games, you could make yourself rich...
