  1. I always aim high in anything I do but I 'take baby steps' too. I'm sorry I didn't make my question clear but it doesn't matter, I will just discover the challenge as I move on then :P
  2. Yes that is a challenge in almost every task.
  3. That is also a good point. Thank you sir.
  4. I have just started learning game/graphics programming (with OpenGL) for a few days. Everything I know so far is very basic like camera, VBO, shader concepts,...I'm just very curious to know what common challenges/problems in game programming are to kinda estimate the time I will need to dedicate to my learning. My biggest goal at the moment is to make a decent looking 3d game with many open worlds and pretty looking shaders.   What are the challenges that I should be afraid of (or prepared for) the most to make that kind of game?

    Barzai, I appreciate your post. I thought ME pays more than CS in general, at least that's what on the internet. Maybe it depends on what kind of engineering job it is. I want to major in something different than CS because If need to work in one then I just need to prove I have the skills so the degree is not essential. I also read somewhere people quit CS/college bc what they teach you in months can be learned in weeks. One downside is engineering majors tend to have more work load that will eat up my time for coding. What I have said might not be true. I'll see how things go after some classes. ISDCaptain01, I will take a look at that too.

      Engineering majors barely get free time. I don't know about you, but I def. would not feel like coding after studying some vector dynamics or mechanics of materials. Brain draining major + brain draining hobby = burn out Well of course it's going to be tough and I don't like to work as a programmer in a company anyways. Plus I sleep only like 5 hours everyday so I'll have some time for game dev. Worst case I'll change my major bc you know I love to make games.

    I've decided to go for ME and then create a small studio with the money I make. Hope I could make some awesome games.

    Thanks everyone. I'll do more research on ME to see if its for me. But if I major in one and minor in another would there be too little free time for game dev? This is what I'm afraid of.

    I'll be a freshman in college next year majoring in computer science. I have been programming for a long time but new to game/3D programming. Now I want to make games after college but not sure if this is the right path for me. I also like mechanical engineering and I'm considering majoring in either one and minoring in another as a backup. All my free time will be spent on making games.I don't know if this is too much though. Can anyone been in the same situation give me an advice?
