Whether you want to make Games, You’re curious about how Games are made, Or you just want to talk about a Game other people might not have tried, or anything related.
This is the place to talk about it and more, about how games are made, what they mean, how we can make them better, and any aspect of games that you’re Interested in bring up.


Being a long time viewer of Extra Credits, I’m Interested in sharing it with other people and talking about their videos if I can.

Their Feature Topic at the time of this OP is about MMOs and they recently put out Episodes on Quest Design as well, Of course that’s just a start for this thread.

Go ahead and feel free to talk about things other then Extra Credits or Video games that have relevance.
Extra credits is certainly not the only show that talks about games (Sequelitis, Errant Signal, Gamer Vlogs like Totalbiscit, ect) and they certainly talk about other things that aren’t strictly video games but somehow relevant.

(and please mind that my current internet speed at time of post can only load load text and images at best and won’t play videos well, :< sorry if I can’t answer a specific question about a video.)

Now with everything in place, we can now discuss about Games, Because They Matter.

No badge for you!

Although this sounds cool, I’d rather be on the hardware side of the industry any day. I enjoy coding, but I have no artistic skills to speak of, so I’m better fit for that aspect anyways.

If I get a high enough OP score at school, and if I can get the money for it, I want to get into the Game Design course at a Media Academy. Then once I get my bachelors, Ill go work at some random company, see how things are done, then start my own company. I will be lurking, as it is my dream to get into game desgin.

I think it will be relevant to your interest to watch extra credits, they’ve also got a playlist on Game Careers, so I think you’ll want to check it out.

Thanks for crushing my dreams. ;_;

Is anyone interested in cross-platform game development in Haxe? I’ve tried to get into it several times, but it keeps bouncing me out with incomplete docs and stuff not working. Maybe extra heads will help.

There’s a game design class at my local uni. Maybe some of the online resources might be helpful, or you can challenge yourself to keep up with the students who are taking the class.

Also, I’m surprised no one has mentioned Gamedev.net yet. The articles there should be helpful, although I’m having trouble finding their classics since they’ve changed the format to a redditalike that concentrates on recent submissions instead of whatever is most read.
