What are the best schools, like colleges, for game design and computer engineering. By game design I mean the coding and making of the game, NOT the animation and drawing.

Game design is a fucking scam. You're better off killing yourself now.

computer science.

if there is a gaming in the title, its a fucking scam

Get a proper degree like CS, then you can get a cushy real job once you realize how shit professional game dev actually is.
>>
>>322289814
This. Look for a school with a good computer science program. Some good schools even have a "specialization in digital media" or something similar that will let you take a few computer science classes specifically geared towards game making.
>>
Game design is a whole other discipline separate from code and art
>>
>>322289695
I have one in my house. There's a uniform code though. So be ready. No being naughty either.
>>
get a degree on CS you dumb fuck

Not always, not if it's apart of a legit computer science program. Stony Brook in NY is known for its computer science program which is a normal comp sci program but in your last year you can take classes geared towards making specific things like games. They have a class on AI, a class on implementing art assets and GUI elements, ect.

Game Developers work INSANE hours, they get paid minimum wage, they sleep in the office, they don't get holiday pay or any kind of benefits.
All of this for 'the privilege' of making video games for a living

You're wasting your time and money if it's anything game related.

My college actually started offering a game design course this year; even the instructor for the class told me the chances of getting work in the game industry or anything related (such as simulators for aerospace/military) are pretty fucking slim.

You'll be better off doing CS/engineering and just learning about game stuff on your own as a hobby.

I'm currently getting holiday pay and I mostly work 10-6, pays not great considering how hyper competive the market is and how specialised the skill set is

Here's an excellent tip: Don't go to college for fucking video game design, you incredibly dense retard.
If you want to make games, you take a more general programming field such as software engineering. A degree in video game design would get you nothing except debt and the crippling realization that anywhere you try to apply to will laugh their asses off at the waste of oxygen that actually spent thousands of dollars going to school for FUCKING VIDEO GAME DESIGN
>>
game design courses are scams
>>
>>322290223
If you're going for a comp sci degree with maybe some gaming electives, sure. Obviously don't go to a fucking school that advertises itself for game designing.
>>
You know you could literally take any career path and still somehow end up in a video game based company, right? It's a huge industry, everyone gets their shot.

Fucking THIS

Get a real programming job, and work on games as a hobby. Only once the money you've earned from the games you make on the side overpowers the money you earn from your real programming job do you switch your career to it.

>I’m always amazed at the responses I get when I mention Lost Vale. So many fans want to know all about uit! Yet.. at the time.. it was such an unpopular product at Origin plus the environment it was being produced in was atrocious.

>We has just come off the Ultima 8’s death march, crunch. It had been 10 months of mandatory 12 hour minimum days, 7 days a week. Only in the last month or two did they start to give us a Sunday off every other week or so.. so we could do laundry.

>They would bring dinner in for us so we wouldn’t leave, cuz they knew if we did, we would likely not come back. Toward the end I was pulled in to my lead’s office and told that I needed to find someone else to go to my house each night to feed my dogs – because it was taking me away from the office way too long in the evenings after dinner. ….but.. enough bad memories…

Shit like that hardly ever happens for peroids longer than two weeks since 2012. Fingers crossed it stays that way
