Computer Game Designer



The road to finding your career can be long and fraught with wrong turns, sudden stops, and near misses. Most of us don’t know what we want to do for a living, especially when we’re young and we still have so many experiences ahead of us that will shape our personalities. We so often choose a career based on how much money we’ll make or what our parents or peers value as important. But long term, no matter how much money you have, choosing a career that’s not truly “you” can do more harm than good. You spend a lot of hours at the office, so you better make them worthwhile.

If gaming is your passion, it’s never too late to to become a computer game designer. Do what you love for a living instead of ‘working for the man’ and being lost in the huddled masses from 9-5. Software companies and game design studios are making big money these days and have never rewarded those in the field with better pay. On average, a computer game designer starts around the 80k range in the US, and even more in urban areas where gaming studios and companies are more prevalent.
