While agree people do waste there lives at times, I strongly disagree video games are life wasters. Video Games are an art, People spend years drawing storyboards, designing characters, composing music, writing a story, Finding the right people to do voice acting, And it all turns out to be a masterful piece of art with amazing stories and well though out plots, Games are not simple "games" anymore.

exactly. after i played morrowind, i decided i wanted to make games just like that, huge, fun, with an amazing story.
other games with amazing stories i like are; the halo series, half life, oblivion, mass effect, gears of war etc. the list goes on.
video games are in the same class as books or movies, they are just interactive. i want to make the games i love, and if anyone thinks THATS a waste of time, perhaps you've forgotten what dreams are all about.

Yah, my little brother played games for that lengh of time each day, so with the support of my parents I wiped his hard-drive and installed Ubuntu linux, clamped it down so that he cant even install mini games or play games on the web - even playing them becomes a compulsion for him, so far he's tried to get past the system I've set twice just to install something sneakily but I've just made it impossible for him to change his system at all now. He totally hates me for it but he'll thank me in the long run. It's completely nuts when you find yourself sat at a screen for 10-12 hours a day, complete waste of a life.


i did that too, but i just had to change the password of his username, that was all.

Yeah, he's that dumb... dry.gif

Well there is a world of difference between making games and playing games for sure. Makeing videos games is highly skilled, creative work smile.gif The main backbone of makeing games is of course programming skills amoungst others.

If you really want to follow your dream grab yourself a C++ book and start learning to programme! wink.gif

I wanted to make video games too so I started college as a computer science major and I quickly learned that i would much rather just play games rather than make them. The work load is obscene and I couldn't handle the amount of time in front of the screen. They have borderline unreasonable expectations for workloads. To put it in persepective, I maybe put in 12 hours a week outside of the classroom on my other 15 hours, but my computer science classes always had 20+ hours of work each week, and having a knack for it doesn't necessarily speed it up, it's just gruntwork coding in a lot of cases. I don't want to discourage you, just realize it takes LOTS of hard work to get there. I ended up learning C, C++, Java, Pascal, and Scheme before I realized that it wasn't for me. Hopefully your resolve is stronger than mine was.

im not talking about coding and programing im talking about creative design. i have so many stories and creative ideas in my head, and my favorite games are the ones with a great story, so i want to write the stories and create the worlds and characters.

kind of. for example, bethesda, who make the elder scrolls series, have people called loremasters, who create characters, locations and story elements, and make sure they fit the elder scrolls lore and story. something like that would be awesome.
