Video Game Producer
Some skills that are required to become a video game designer is
- Critical thinking and problem solving: Designers need to come up with a lot of solutions to a problem. Having experience in science, math, debate, political science, or even improve can help here.
- Communication: Designers need to translate their ideas to programmers, artists, and producers. Learning how to write and speak clearly about your ideas is essential
- Teamwork: Designers rely on other people to make their ideas a reality. You have to be able to work with a lot of different people with different skills than yours. Practice with group projects. Conflict is inevitable but learning how to deal with that conflict is essential.
- Programming: Most designers are expected to have at least some ability to program. Being familiar with basics is very helpful nowadays. I recommend these resources as a starting point
