>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.
I just need motivation.
>same thing finally happened to me
>can start skilling up, studying, focusing
>mfw it happened 26 years too late
>mfw I wish i could take back all that time I used to learn programming and 3D modeling to learn something else.
>MFW when you were never one of those nerds who played vidya throughout high school and didn't study game design because you're not an idiot.
motivation is fucking 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.
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.
>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",
