  1. Just how complex are AAA games?

    I imagine that writing a game solo, you start to realize that refining any one part of your game could months of your dedicated attention.

  4. Improvements on a game

    Its not such a big deal but I would consider using enums for bodyparts, weapons and magic. It tends to make code easier to maintain
  5. Want to put a team together (Group Learning)

    I really like your team idea -it's something I've considered doing myself once or twice. As thok said, you still need to manage youself but i think working in a tight-knit team increases motivation and teaches you loads. What language were you thinking of using? I know a little c++, flash and python but my main language is Java. I am also working on my art skills (if we happen to work on something with a few graphics). So ya -I'm in
