I'm glad to see this thread full of people who wanted to go into game design and decided not to

It annoys the fuck out of me when some dipshit in Highschool wants to make video games for a living. Colleges that have a "game design" program are fucking scams.

Go learn to program and go into application development for some corporation and make fucking bank.

I know way to many people who wanted to make games and ended up dropping out because they didn't realize the whole programming aspect that game design has to kinda sorta deal with. Not to mention the years of experience in the programming industry to even be considered for a job in a big name studio.

I wanted to be a game designer when I was younger, around pre-teen years. Good thing I didn't because the game industry is shit nowadays. I sincerely hope some good developers come out of the woodworks though.

>>doing a dummy job is worse than doing a hard one
That's the rub. I have a friend who made 2x or 3x what I make, and he quit to travel the world and try to forge a new career path. He got to do the former, but the latter didn't pan out, and now he's got a less profitable (and enjoyable) version of the job he had a year before.

Ah well, gotta remind myself it's a first-world problem compared to what most folks on this planet have to deal with. Best of luck to you, /b/ro.

Never knew they polygraphed all potential cops, may or may not have sold my ADHD pills when I was 18 and I think that ruined my chances. So I gave up on that and smoked weed and did LSD recently out of spite which DEFINITELY ruined my chances.

Music program in college sucked and I realized how saturated the market was and dropped out.

Hard to explain. I work full time with elementary school kids who go to shit tier schools. I don't have a teaching degree, but the organization I work for works within the school system. The kids come to us (there's 5 tutors) and splits up into small groups and we teach them math, because that's where the biggest gap is.

Pay is garbage. Huge surprise, I know. Working in non-profit and education, you'd think I'd be making bank.

Gotta help these little nigs learn, though.

And it's kinda crazy working in a place that was 100% black, students and faculty, until I got there. Swayin the stats.

When I was a kid I literally wanted to be a drug addict living in a van. It seemed really freeing.

Now I'm almost 25 and rent a room in a house my friend owns for crazy cheap and get drunk and high almost every night so it's going pretty alright I guess.

I did own a minivan for a while too, but I gave it to my sister and got my younger brother's '08 Chevy Aveo when he bought an '04 Audi.

There's still a part of me that wants to be a drifter piece of shit and tour the country in a VW van selling drugs to get by. It just seems noble and like it would teach you a lot about yourself.

Sure, downtown in any major city is going to cost a butt load. However, you can also catch a 15 minute bus ride outside of the downtown core and check out the other neighborhoods for half the price in rent.

I wanted to direct movies when I was in highschool. I wanted to be an animator when I first got into college. I wanted to be an attorney when I graduated college. I wanted to be anything except an attorney when I was in law school. I'm now a general contractor. I have loads of discretionary income (deep into 6 figures), I make my own schedule, and I fuck a ton of 20 something year olds because I stay fit, im blessed with good genes (I look young, but I'm 40) and I love my life.

I just started writing my own short horror stories and posting them on various sites online. Eventually I got contacted by Warner Bros about them wanting to make one of my stories into a movie but I said no because I wanted to direct that particular story some day.

I talked to them some more and eventually was asked for a couple ideas and they paid top dollar. Then I started getting requests from video game developers and other authors to collaborate with.

Also my great uncle is R. Lee Ermey and he's been in a few horror movies.

If you are going to make money writing, you need 3 things above all else, in this order.

1. Marketing skills
Under this I am including getting/maintaining connections, advertising your work intelligently, etc.
2. Organization
How do you get connections? Doing a FUCK TON of shitty writing jobs. Writing website copy for 50 bucks, maybe a few shitty blog articles for some companies. On top of this, you should be writing fiction/articles (whatever you're into) and trying to get them published.
All of this means you can't be a slacker, and you can't be unorganized. You can crush that website copy in a couple hours, maybe less. Have it to them by 9 AM and it's the first thing they see in their inbox when they get to their desk. BOOM, impression made. Now write those 20-30 minute articles for 10 dollars a piece, maybe you'll get semi steady work out of one of them. I could go on about this, but I won't.
3. Writing ability
>Hurr durr this should be number 1

You're a retard

>buh buh buh but If I'm good enough...

No fuck you. You aren't nearly fucking good enough for your writing ability to just carry you to a job. I promise.

You do have to be good, which is why it makes the list. You have to be damn good, actually. Better than all those other faggots trying to make money doing the same shit. But if you can't market yourself and your work, and you aren't organized, you're dead in the water.

are you me? i wanted to be a rockstar or a guitar teacher cause i knew rockstar never happens. if im dead broke ill teach kids here and there, but ive just been washing dishes since i turned 18. started doin it for 8$ an hour, 3 years later im a prep cook at 11 an hour. its not a kings ransom or anything, but hell it pays for my habit, i get to eat gourmet food during my shift, and i have my own little prep station where i blast my ipod and nobody bothers me. thinking about just saying fuck it and keeping on moving up in the industry, be a chef somewhere shitty and get like 25k a year.

I also wanted to make video games but that didn't happen either, clearly. I've considered saying fuck it and just roll with the foodservice business considering I've done it for like 8 years now. Would have to let my trackmarks heal up and find another job, though, since I work at a shitty place that pays me $8/hr to wash dishes and sometimes short order cook.

I dunno. You make bad choices and shit happens, I guess, haha.

8 years and you're still getting paid minimum? i got bumped up to 10 an hour washing dishes at 20 years old 2 years into my food service stint. at 21 i was making 15 an hour when i decided to join the front of the house bussing tables, the tips were incredible, but i love food and prefer being in the back because i cant stand jobs where i cant listen to my ipod, so now im back down to 11 an hour, with the opportunity to move up to line cook from prep cook and go to 12 an hour, and then chef one day if i work the line long enough
