Game Design Major Needs Guidance
(Edited due to vagueness on my part. I explain my situation better in my first reply.)
I am currently a Junior attending the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).
My major - Interactive Design and Game Development
My first concern is that even though I respect this school; I feel that after now becoming a junior I should know more about game design. I know that I have these last 2 school years left to learn more, but it feels like I haven't learned enough up to this point.
I have been reading a lot of the articles from Gamasutra and Gamecareerguide on how to prepare for the industry but some of what they say is easier said than done in my opinion. I am not a fanboy of movies, tv shows, or even video games which I think puts me far behind.
I have just started self-teaching C# with the Head First C# book, but I am looking for other ways of self-teaching to help me get a leg up in school. I don't want to just graduate with a degree. I want to have enough under my belt to get a job.
I really just need advice from people who have self-taught aspects of game design successfully so I can get an idea of where to go from here.
Thanks for reading!
