Hello forum members. Yesterday i posted a ‘funny’ video kinda similar to what is going on in my life, thought i might ask for some advise here.
I want to be a video game designer, want to learn the trade and craft and i want to become a part of the Industry. In my country, India, you’ll have billion dollar compaines, IT startups and what-not but there’s still not a major impact laid down by the indian gaming industry.
I’ve completed my under grad and got my degree of BBA, now its MBA for a ‘better’ salary package, placement, job position etc.
I just want to tell my parents that, i want to be a game designer. I’m not trying to be a misunderstood genius who breaks boundaries but i just want to do what i love. I wont care if my salary is less than my friend X who has done an MBA, as long as i am happy and enjoy what i do.
The things that i am afraid of/ want to ask you guys is:
How can i convince my parents? If they ask for what are the future prospects if i pursue a degree in game designing rather than MBA.
Has anybody had a similar experience? Can you help?
If you/your friend/known associate is in the gaming industry, what are the future prospects? Salary?
Please help guys, thanks.
