The other day, my cousin Jeff came over to hang out. I showed him part of my RPG, focusing on a bizarre location with series of puzzles and tricks called the Crystalline Temple. He found himself satisfied and challenged, then made an interesting comment to me. He remarked on how many kids will play some XBox 360 game and immediately say, "I wanna be a video game designer when I grow up!" And that comment seemed realistic. But he then said that people who do stuff as I do (actually develop games regardless the difficulty, bug/glitch amounts, etc) are more likely to be in those positions later on in life.

And that statement seemed to be true. I'm not gonna be all, "LOL I MAKE GAMES. I BE GREAT DESIGNER SOMEDAY," but it could be an option. There are lots of roads I could take in life, several at once. Being a video designer would be cool, especially for a game striking my interest. And to those who think it's not possible, I COULD become a video game designer, Broadway actor, triple-platinum singles singer/writer, AND Harry Potter-comparable book series author. :D:

Well, the field of video games is interesting because there are so many people who work on it. You have the programmers, 3d modelers, composers, directors, debuggers, and writers. The one someone who just plays xbox could actually do well is debugging. Debugging involves making sure someone can't do something stupid (ie. in pokémon, send out a fainted pokémon to fight).

Anyway, just because we don't do something specifically, doesn't mean we'll never do it. However, we do have to be on the write track. For example, you don't necessarily have to have been in every school play to be that broadway actor, maybe you moved to this field from singing or something. Also, someone who has never written a book, but reads many books, could also easily become an author because of the general interest in this field.

Your interests do show early, odds are your greatest strength now is what you will be doing in the future.

I agree. But I'm going to be a paleontologist, a video game designer, and president of the Pokemon Company. So, if you want, Chuey, you can join me with any one of those, preferably video game designing.

Great spirit and attitude, but I don't think the last suggestion will go through... o-o

You mean joining me? But why not? I thought you wanted to design video games!

Like AB pointed out, there is no such thing as a simple "video game designer" anymore. Games development teams have tons of different positions available, such as artists, musicians, programmers, etc. Pretty much anyone with any sort of artistic talent could find a place on a development team.

So Chuey... how well is your song writting :D:

It takes less than 10 notes to impress someone, more than a million to be remembered.

He will be so rich from all his jobs, he will pay people to write for him. But he also owns the media, so the world will never know.
