Hey GDers, What is the best field of the industry to be in around 6 years from now? Possible answers I''m looking for should take into account: -high demand vs supply levels -considered a specialist? -high salaries -high level of experience/education required to get in -high company dependancy on you ...and anything else important, in that order of importance. Fields such as AI programming, 3D art, VR technology, R&D, simulations for entertainment or warfare applications all count, doesn''t have to be strictly game related. Thanks for your input, I want to find out where to focus my education in time for my impact with the world of careers. Red Sodium

No one can answer that question. The industry/technology is moving too fast in too many different areas. The area of game development where you will have the best/most secure future is the area you love the most as that is what you will do best at. If you are going to work in an area because it offers job security or a possible better salary you may as well go and write accounting software.

Passion is the area that will reward you most 6 years from now.
