I should have heard you guys when I had the chance. But now, I'm on Game Design college or whatever the fuck it is called.

I'm so sorry
Transfer to another school.
Take a dedicated programming/comp sci or art course.
"Game Design" is literally a scam targeted at the retard autists you mentioned.
>Game Design
You deserve it.
Just drop out and take some programming/art/music/whatever classes at a community college and design the actual game mechanics intuitively.

Not hard
We told you.
how about you go to school and get a degree in computer science

then get a job in computer science make some income till you have enough to start looking for a game development job
This except community college, you could be being taught by high school teacher equivalent professors in the us depending on where you are.
>in programming class right now
>there's a guy infront of me with an SAO rainmaker and a league of legends wallpaper

it doesn't change
Me too OP... I'm on my second year... at least they taught us how to use the unreal engine.

Luckily for me the 3DS Max I learnt can be translated into actual business. Try to apply anything you've learnt OP. You're not in your grave yet.
I seriously don't understand why game design is even a course aside from being an obvious scam.

You should know all the rules intuitively from religiously playing vidya for the previous 10+ years of your life so the only thing you need to do is just practise making your own games until you git gud, if you're just the idea guy then you can't do shit.
At least you have a chance of learning useful skills
Literally the same thread was posted yesterday
It is your own fault.

You chose this grave.
>not just sitting at home and learning RPGmaker or Unreal Engine
U dun goofd, retard.
you can get further in video games just by being a modder i think. what is schooling you on game mechanics seriously going to do for someone who plays games 24/7 anyway?
>what is schooling you on game mechanics seriously going to do for someone who plays games 24/7 anyway?
Literally nothing.
It's a honeytrap for autistic children.
why do you need classes to know that controls shouldn't be shit and shit needs to be balanced (or at the very least the way you want it)?
You will have this kind of people everywhere. Here in Germany every university is infested with 9gag browsing, Big Bazooper Faggotry watching normalfag memelords, even in "serious" study fields. If you like what you're learning, stick with it and learn to ignore them.
Does your school offer internships? If thats the case then that is what makes it worth it. Just fuck all classes, start brownnosing every guest speaker and focus 100% on building a stable portfolio and getting connections.

Other than that its the fastest route to the unemployment office.

Do one of these OP

If you're really passionate about wanting to make games you shouldn't waste any more time there

Outta there and going to an actual uni in September to study Multimedia.
well i know someone majoring in game design so its funny to me. but i cant judge im not really doing shit.
CC is pretty gr8 for getting skills m8.

You want to be the ideas guy
Want a tip if yo dont want to work at a gamestop for the rest of your life?
Take comp sci
Just do digital animation, ya jabroni
He's going to start on Flash and move up to shockwave.
They're gonna be flipping burgers when they're done.
If you program you basically have a guaranteed job because its such a broad skill, if you do art and don't suck then you can keep yourself afloat with commission work, if you do game design you have no useful skills whatsoever.

If I was running a studio I would NEVER hire a game design student, I would hire a modder that had actually made some good innovative shit and actually knew what they were doing.

Go ask pretty much anyone in the industry and they'll have the same opinion.

>game design college

What exactly were you expecting? Adequate human beings?
>Go to Art School
>Has Game Design Major
>Doesn't fucking teach Game Design

Like, I get that design is a fucking stupid major, but at least teach the damn thing. What's the point of the major if you just teach 3D Modeling/animation. THere are better major's for these things

Also, SCAD is probably one the best schools for game design because they don't bother teaching stupid shit like game design, instead they try to teach skills like modeling and focus on that shit. Also has a big focus on making you marketable to studios so you can get a job right out of college
You've gone back into the cave Anon.

Either accept your responsibility as king of the blind, or flee.
That's one of the problems. A teacher is trying to teach us HTML for the second time, while other is teaching us how to use photoshop, while a third one is teaching us about "character design".
My college actually has a decent Game Design program. It's mostly learning with engines and 3D modeling, though the rest is useless shit like basic common knowledge about video games.

The degree won't get you a job but the skills can. You'll need to show your competence with your own work. Put together a portfolio or take advantage of Steam Greenlight and try to make a name for yourself

Literally everything you need to know about design is on youtube or polycount.com
Your entire course is a sham.

>Turns out I don't have enough money to sign up to any of them,

I missed an opportunity.

They teach the basics of pretty much all the standard programs you use in game design. Its not a specialized study, its an overview and you are expected to work in each facet of a game's development
I'm doing game design as one of my electives in my bachelor of science. my major is computing
I figured why not, it'll be easier than anything else I might do.
That's fucking awful.
Find a specialist course that can teach you shit you can't just find with a simple google or youtube search.
You are literally paying for a subpar equivalent to free step by step videos on any subject you could imagine.

>I figured why not, it'll be easier than anything else I might do.
If you want to waste your education thats your choice, you only do university once.

Where can you only "do" Uni once? in Afghanistan?
Unless you're a trust fund babby then you're fucked if you do it more than once.

I guess?
like, there's no way of knowing what will and what won't get me a job. Chances are, I'll have to go through re-education eventually anyway so I don't think WHAT I learn is so important as showing THAT I can learn.
like I said, it's only an elective, not my major. I'm just doing it for fun/it's what I want to learn/I'll probably wanna do game design anyway

How does one get into college anyway? I did well in high school, but that was 5 years ago. I don't need to take a test for placement or anything do I? Or is it as simple as walking in, asking about what I'd learn from the available courses, signing up, and paying?
After I dropped out after serving a year on on the so called prestige uni, a year later of me dropping out a friend I knew also dropped out because what they were teaching was still basic and pure shit. I knew of this 3 other years later wen I found him walking to a store and talked to him.
>I'd learn from the available courses, signing up, and paying?

Yes. Other than that, you have to take an aptitude test to see if you know basic shit about Math, English, and Science. Some colleges won't accept you if you're not up to their standards.
Shit. I haven't studied in years, but I really want to start taking computer courses at college. I'm sick of working in a convenience store.

Also, is it possible to transfer from one college to another across the country? I'm also sick of living in this city, so if I could start here then move elsewhere when it becomes an option that'd be great. I seem to remember hearing about such opportunities in high school.
Apparently, syntax was not in the curriculum.
badum ts.
>Took Integrated Arts & Technology (basically a mix of compsci and art/design with a choice to focus on either one and get the relevant BSc or BA)

Lucked out.

Surprising number of non-autistic weebs in those classes which was interesting.

>Game design
