Programming aside... what are your favorite "game industry" cities and why? I haven't been fortunate enough to live or visit the hotspots like Los Angeles or Washington, but I'm not imagining good things... and actually a bit scared. How long does it take you to get to work? So far Brisbane, Australia sounds really nice ;)

Lots of people and companies like Vancouver. Diverse population, great weather, large talent pool.

Cheers

Montreal is the place to be ;) We have EA, Ubi, A2M, etc... lots of Universities, lots of graphics schools, etc... Being bilingual is a plus here, but people only speaking English usually end up doing well anyway.

Takes me around 10 mins to get to work.

I can't talk about cities, but you should notice that while you are reading this post you are actually using a device which is in itself quite hotspot for any industrial information processor.

Well, it might be a question of taste, but I'd prefer someone with a comp science degree to someone with a "game programming" degree :)

Manhattan actually has quite a few small studios that work on things like cell phone and flash games. Very little console game development that I know of, however.
