In Topic: Game Development - Where to start?

My diploma was specialized on networking and support, I did bits and pieces of programming and find it interesting. I'll definitely check out these links and see how things go and might look further into a course for next semester. Thanks very much for the advice, much appreciated.

 

Ah. I see. If you want to do game dev, then you should take game dev (programming) courses.

I became a fulltime gamedev before MVC was invented so i'm not overly familiar with it.


O_o

MVC was invented in the 70s. And implemented in the 80s with Smalltalk.

I'm hijacking my own thread, instead of making a new thread for this. So feel free to talk about both topics.

Given that Nintendo has had 3 VR/3D systems: Famicom 3D System, Virtual Boy, and 3DS and given that VR is going to come on to the scene in a big way, I wonder why Nintendo hasn't announced making another VR headset. It's not like they don't have the expertise or games in place. They were pioneers (for console games) in this field and now they are just going to let everyone else pass them by?

If we're lucky, Nintendo will roll out an upgraded All-Color Virtual Boy!

In Topic: What games will stand the test of time?

Mario and Zelda because of staying power and the creators of those IPs have pretty much perfected game design and gameplay of those games.

Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Halo, Call of Duty, Halo, Grand Theft Auto, Tomb Raider, Mega Man, Sonic, Final Fantasy, Tetris. will also be remembered in my opinion.

As far as particular games: SMB3, MK1, SF2, Halo 1, GTA III, Tomb Raider (PS1), Mega Man X, Sonic 2, FF7, Zelda: Link to the Past. I don't play CoD so I couldn't tell you.
