    Welcome. Got any favorite games? I used to be in game development as well.

    a favorite game, not really, more like favorite parts in different games
    (e.g. gameplay mechanic of assassins creed(moving/ combat) or the story line of Mass effect, the pvp gamplay mechanics of terra online, puzzles of portal,...)
    hard to choose 1 game, there are to many of them

    Hello and welcome to the Science Forum!
    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    ~ Arthur Schopenhauer, The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (1831), Stratagem XXXVIII.

    In what aspect of game development do you want to work? I was an object and environment modeller. I dabbled in texturing, but it was not my forte. Programming is my bane.

    definitely programming , i have been doing it for about 7 years now, started programmin on my calculator xD creating games during class
    love to create/recreate algorithms (E.g. AI, pseudorandom level generator, etc),
    searching for that piece of code to create an awesome button

    my models and textures aren't bad, but i need a lot more practice to speed up the process
    preproduction is my bane, the final's paints are ok, but how i get to it takes to much time and way to much coffee xD

    Definitely get a well-rounded repertoire, but stick to your strength and specialize. Unless you get into being a project lead, you'll just be working in one area. I did nothing but build models for a while. I never even got to input on the textures. I had a buddy who was JUST a cloth modeler. He only worked in realistic fabrics. Talk about tedious.

    Aloha and from the French or Flemish part of Belgium!

    We had a Belgium exchange student that I still keep in contact with and have actually visited her. She became part of our family!

    WELCOME!

    I built props and worked a spot in theater in high school. Always wanted to be on stage (I can actually sing pretty well), but I never had the guts to do it or the ego to drive me.

    I think stand up comics might have the scariest job in the world. Forget coal mining or the guy who changes the light bulb on the top of a skyscraper, being funny on command in front of 200 drunks is where it's at.

    I have found props, built and painted sets, run lights, been a runner when the theatre called me in desperation, been the lead in so many shows I can't even begin, but preferred character parts because your imagination has to run triple time. I can sing in a house of 300 without a microphone if my accompaniment , is a light 3 piece (piano, guitar, violin) trio.

    Stand up comedy is brutal.

    So is a one man/woman show.

    Nothing in the arts is easy......nor can I, personally ever stop striving to be so much better.
