I don't have frustration in learning and developing games, despite constant discouragement. So should I give up and just turn away from all these discouragement? Maybe I'm not meant to be because people say I'm not meant to be a video game developer? Who can be a video game developer?

I remember when I started making games I felt a little discouraged because I saw what others could create and felt that it was out of my reach. Years later after just focusing on making simple games within my ability, I can now do the things that I thought I couldn't before. Just stick with it, your skills will improve, you can be a game developer.

This is very true. Game development can be tough, and it's easy to get discouraged, especially when you compare your skills to others', particularly in the beginning. Stick with it, you'll get better. If you DO stick with it, you'll make some cool stuff, and you CAN make a career of it.

I guess the first thing is to listen to your gust feeling and follow your dream.

 

If creating games is what makes you happy, then follow this dream.

 

Now, there can be many ways in which you can create or contribute to a game: it does not have to be coding; you could create audio, characters, the game concepts, etc.

 

The next thing is to meet like-minded people often; find a club or bodies who enjoy creating games, and get together to create something cool.

 

Las, but not least: be kind to yourself: this is a craft that you will learn steps by steps, and failing is part of the learning process. You will fail..that's inevitable but also part of the learning process. What makes a difference is what you learn from it and that you keep going.

 

So, I hope this helps.
