+shaik imran It truly is hard to break into the industry or get noticed even if you do awesome work. Hopefully the SilicaNEXUS Project can make it a little bit easier, if you can make it on one of their development arrays! Drop in your email on the silicanexus.com site and you will be sent the facts on how to get on a development array around Siggraph time frame.

wht i dream and imagine nice dude...

I'm at the brink of giving up. There's no hope. I have no money for any college except for a community college. I recently quit my fast food job so I can work on honing my game design skills. I am not eligible for FAFSA since it thinks my parents are "rich enough." So far I created games for my high school game design class (which game me a grade of 100) and for my senior project (which gave me a 97 grade). Both in my opinion would be laughed at by professional game designers, especially the entry level ones. This leaves me to the conclusion that I have no other choice but to completely give up my silly dream of becoming a good game designer and developer and join the military instead. I hope someone can help me out on this dilemma.

I would totally like to work on Call of Duty , but not any COD, just on the Black Ops series (made by Treyarch), because i am a huge fan of the Zombies mode and i have been gaming my entire life, i know what the gamer wants and what they don't want. What to add and what not to add,i have been a game designer for a year now,but before that, i am always a gamer.

I've seen a lot of people say this, but you won't get a job as an 'idea' guy. The idea guys are the entire team. Everyone working on the project contributes ideas, if you just want to contribute ideas, this isn't the right industry for you.

I use 3d studio max! It's actually a really good program. By the way, don't try to get into game development without knowing how to use that extensively.

+Da Cawtz how about just programming? 
Report spam or abuse
+Gureen Turee There's jobs for the programming side of it too, they go hand in hand. There are plenty of jobs in the gaming industry, 3d artist, 3d character design, stuff for making the enviornments, stuff for programming, concept art, and so much more. The 3d art side of it is making the characters and such, where as the programming is tying that all into the game engine.
