Uhmm ... what is your field of interest? Game development as whole? If so, that is a pretty frickin' broad field. Programmers, artists, producers, designers, sound engineers, game testers, etc are all game developers.

Well, I'm mostly interested in video game art and design, leaning more towards art. But awnsers that would cover all fields would be sweet, if it's possible that is...

I think you're kind of missing the point. Different positions within game development call for wildly different amount and types of education, hours you put into work, etc. My experiences as a designer are certainly different than the QA part timers or the senior programmers. Also, a research paper needs to have at least a relatively limited scope or you'll find up either writing a book or a crappy paper (just my opinion [wink]).

If you PM me your e-mail address I'll fill out your questionnaire for you.
