You have probably seen a lot of post about switching careers to game dev and i am sorry for adding another one. I have the same situation. I have a BS degree in Computer Engineering, i have been in a programming career since i graduated which is 3 years ago. I've used JAVA and i am currently diving deeper to c++. I saved money for 3 years so that i could get a Master's Degree, now i have enough to take it and hoping that i could switch my career to Game Development.
I'm planning on studying in U.K. for my degree though still undecided on which University i'll be applying to (Newcastle U, Goldsmiths U and Nottingham Trent U). Degree choices are Game Dev, Game Designs, Game Systems and Computer Games Engineering and i feel like taking the last one.
I need any advice i could get. Should i proceed with my plan? Is Computer Games Engr. a good choice? I wanna develop games specially for future gens and this includes VR Interactive games and Augmented reality which i think is the reason to picking Computer games engineering.
