So You Wanna Be A Game Designer?
9:54 AM | Tony Jones | Comment on this story recently posted a feature explaining what it means to be a game designer. The feature explains the hardships game designers face when creating a game. The feature interviews four of the industry's top game designers, Chris Avellone, Cliff Bleszinski, Ken Levine, Akira Yamaoka, and tells of how they became what they are now.

But how many of you actually know what being a game designer means? What does a game designer do on a day-to-day basis? Some of us might imagine that all it takes is vision or having great ideas. But it's much more than that. The days of just scribbling something on the back of a napkin are long gone, if they ever even existed. Today's game designers need to be multidimensional. Their job is to make great ideas become reality, and that involves working with many different people and understanding the different specialists who need to work together to create games. Coordination, cooperation, and compromise are the name of the game.
This feature gives ideas on how to get a career in game design started. For the full feature check out the links below.
