I have a friend at digipen right now and I think he is getting a great education in video games. It is not neccesary however to attend a ''game'' school to get into the industry or to learn how to make games. Most people just get a degree in computer science and make games in their free time. Eventually someone sees the games or you send them out as demos and then you have a job. I haven''t finished college yet, but I did code a few games that i sent out to game companies as demos and I got hired that way. I''ve said it before and i''ll say it again, make a game and show everyone. Companies are looking for people that can get the job done and it shows a lot of initiative to make a complete game on your own.
