Video Game Design
by: Josue Teran
"I had made a family friendly game about a beaver before this but it was criticized online; people said the main character looked like a scary animatronic. I went into a pretty deep depression and was ready to give up game-making. Then something in me snapped and I thought to myself that I bet I could make something a lot scarier than that!"-Scott Cawthon. Even when Scott was depressed he still took that hard criticism to make one of the most successful games today Five Nights At Freddy's.
It takes a lot of work to make a successful game but it should be recommended to have an extra job. Some of the most famous video game started working at a local grocery store and made video games as a hobby. "I would recommend a career in game design to anyone BUT I would advise getting a degree and getting a job at an actual game company. Having a solid job and gaining work experience is much more stable than trying to make it as an independent developer."- Scott Cawthon. This shows that if you plan to become a video game designer you should get a job to expand your business.
