1st of all sorry if this is not in the right place, but i do believe that beginners starts here!
Anyway, before i ask you guys the question i am about to ask, i think i should just explain a bit about myself of what i want to do.
Well to get started, i still have not decide as whether to take a Game Design Course or Game Development, because as a person and a gamer who really have an interest in Games and it's community, my wishful plan is to create a 2d and 3d games for Mobile and Web platforms, as the market for Web and Phone is rapidly growing, i feel that it's a challenge for me to enter this industry as a game enthusiast, to be able to participate and know how to in making better games as well as to learn it's mechanic, and to improvise the current genre, we are all gamers, we have passion for games, but making games is another level of challenge for me, which is what i have never done before and hope to create my own game for other people to play, be it on Web, Phones or Console, or even PC. so i am not sure which course is right for me, a Game Design, or Game Development?
Also, just for reference, i do have a 3D Animation background in me, as i have took College for 3D Animation back in 2008 and have worked for several Local Animation Studio for International Clients. i dont know if having an Animation background would benefit me on a Game career.
Ok, so after a thorough search, i have filtered and listed down the possible School that i might take
Ok, some of you might ask me why i didn't include Digipen and Tribeca Flashpoint, well, the reason is simply because of Budget, and the length of the course for Digipen, and as for Tribeca, they cant accept International student yet
Ok with that 6 college i listed, which one according to you, experts, are the best for me to take?
because i honestly dont know which one to take, which course out of the 6 list i give, will allow me able to make a Complete game from the Course? like from Zero to a Finished Products
like let say, i take Fullsail's Game Development, will i be able to make a Web/Mobile games as opposed to the one the Recording Arts Canada offer?
please, i need some guide, this will be a very vital decision in my Life, this is my only chance to enter this Industry, My Parents are only going to give this one chance with that huge tuition fee, and i cant afford to take the wrong Course
I hope you guys can help me!
Oh, if you guys have another recommendation of Game School for me, go ahead, it will be much appreciated, and i could even expand my choices!
