What did you reply??........ .....I suppose if you had a very good libry of codes and made excellent functions....it would reduce time alot..... Take alot of planning...i suppose
Yeah, with the right tools you might get the time down to less than a decade.

There are literally thousands of hours of work in one of these games. And of course, as you can see from the credits posted above, it's not just a matter of how much work. As with any big project, there are a lot of different tasks to be done. Chances are no one person would be suited to all of them.

That list is small, go look at gods of war. That was a simplistic game.

You can, go to school. Get your masters. And then see what tools are available. A lot can happen in 7 years.

1 - You are not going to make it yourself.
2 - You are not going to be hired to help anyone else without a degree.
3 - It requires a masters level, with special focus on mathmatics, physics, and animation.

I am not trying to disappoint you. I am, in all seriousness, giving you the proper course of action if you are serious about developing games.

Keep in mind, that you will learn very little in college of what you need to know to develope games like WOW, Gods of War, GTA, etc.

It is up to you to extend your studies beyond what your school of choice offers. No body else is responsible for you but you.

and then, if you are inteligent, educated, and happen to be in the right place at the right time you might be that 1 in 100 with "Game Developer" degrees that actually lands a job.

good luck!

To be fair, that was only an excerpt from the list.

Yeah. I actually know a guy who got himself a job with a company that was building some big new computer game (forget the name) just because he had taught himself to do really good 3D graphics (I forget what programming language - probably C or C++).

However, he was very much the exception, not the rule.

As a programming exercise I try to program a game. In my case it is called BugEater. The purpose is that you are a snake. It moves automatically but you can control it with the keys on your keyboard. In the field where your snake is, there are candies that you must eat. The more candies you eat, the longer you get. You win if you eat all 10 candies without dying more than 3 times in one level. In that case a time bonus is added to your...

Hello all, awesome site! I guess I am technically not a beginner in JAVA, but from my code you would not realize it!

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
