I subscribe to Yahoo’s daily Ask Yahoo! column on my Google personalized homepage. It’s a creepy arrangement from which I derive a modicum of joy. Anyway, today’s column answers that age old question: What kind of background do I need to get a job in video games? Besides the obvious “eat your vegetables and stay in school, fool!” answers, it does provide some fun extra linking about folks in the industry. And here I thought you just had to go to a special school for that. Then again, you could always try to work for Reggie.
A few of our pals in the Infendo Forums have discussed getting into the game industry. Would you want to make games or just play them?
