I am going to college this fall. What are all you people my age going to college for? I am getting a degree in Simulation/Game Design, with a focus on the visual aspect, as well as the writing. This is where Paint.NET comes in handy. It lets me practice a few of the skills I will need when I get into college. I will probably be going to ITT Technical Institute for it, because they offer a solid, four year program. So anyway, enough about me. What do you want to do?

I am in college now doing Programer Analyst Networking to be able to do programing and networking. After I got all my courses for Programer Analyst Networking I will be doing an online program for 2 more course for 1 more month so I can add Website Administion to my list :D.

Few of the people in my Programer Analyst Networking are going into game design after.

When I first played The Legend of Zelda for NES over a decade ago, I wanted to make my own games, with my own stories and graphics, well, mostly stories. I recently beat The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, which I believe is the best game ever.

A few months ago, I bought a book that teaches basic programming using a language called Blitz3D (maybe Boltbait has heard of it). I know that this may not be the best language to do this (the book even says so), but it is a start.

I am not yet getting into programming, or even the beginning of designing the appearance of things; I am in the middle of writing about a dozen different stories, some fantasy, some sci-fi, and some a bizzare mix of the two.

As for PC games, my father and I have been playing PC games ever since he bought a computer in the early 90's when he was in the Army. I got my first taste of the wonderful world of PC gaming when I played Command and Conquer and beat it within a week. I saved and bought the latest good games as the came out. Ascendancy, Homeworld, Master of Orion, and a slew of others. I still play PC games by myself and with/against my father to this day.

This started as a post about where you wanted to go to college, for what, and why, but this looks more like my life story.

Okay, okay, I'm done. Now you know why I want to design games. What do you fellas in high-school want to do? Well, not just high-schoolers, anybody, really. :)
