What job is right for me?

14 August 2013 - 05:58 PM

Hello I'm new here so if this is the wrong place I'm sorry. 


Anyway I was doing some research about what job I would like to do in the future. Just things like, what degrees I'll need and what job integrates a lot of things that I like to do.


I came upon two jobs that both sound good for me but I am a little unsure. 


The two jobs are game designer, and game producer. I'm leaning towards game designer.


First off let me say that I like gaming, but I'm not trying to get into the industry because I like playing video games. Unlike most players I play for the experience because I like the feeling of video games taking me to another world, or place and having me do something I will never get the opportunity to do in real life. 


I think that I would like to be a game designer because I like the idea of creating new worlds for players and I think I could be good at it. I'm good at writing (at least I'm willing to work on it). And also I am good at managing people and I think I make a good leader, especially on projects. Some of my problems are that I do not draw very well. I enjoy drawing when I can get my ideas out on paper, however often I cannot get what I want drawn. I was wondering if this was a major problem though because I can work with an artist pretty well. I have a friend who is an artist and I started describing ideas to him and he was able to get pretty much exactly what I wanted down on paper. Also I showed him some of my drawings for a reference. 


Anyway I like thinking outside the box to solve problems, I like coming up with ideas for new worlds, and I can manage people pretty well.

My question is should I be a game designer a game producer, or something else? 


Feel free to ask me more questions and I will try to answer them the best I can. If you can, list degrees that would fit well with what I have told you so far.


Thank you for your time. happy.png
