Imagine sitting home and thinking if you should join gamedev for 10 years
@erandria ok i just read ur rant and its good i agree
im also in early 20s
Been a massive emotional mess from 13-21, still healing but feeling much better
U gotta understand that gamedev is the hardest type of programming in existence and to be good at any type of programming field u are not allowed to be a normal human being
The first thing you will learn is the tools dont matter
The second thing you will learn is: tools matter.
The third thing you will learn is the users don't care about the UI.
The fourth thing you will learn is: they do.
Welcome to hell. It's cold here.
Best of luck on your journey! We all tend to keep together here. It's cold in the hell of gamedev
@SukMikeHok you sound like a walking and talking meme. No particular offense but i wanted to leave that out there.
Game dev isn't the hardest programming type there is, it's relatively different cause of the physics involved.
Similar statements could be said about any simulator. Industrial or personal.
Imo the hardest type of programming is the one that makes least sense to the one who made it to begin with. This happens a lot when writing code with c and opengl.. A step further would be prolly Fortran... I ain't sure. Assembly for each processor is definitely the hardest out there. Logic and algorithm is critical along with the instruction set.
@erandria it's amazing experience developing a game, I'm 21 now and I've been thinking about it for 4 years. Finally getting around to it... I've completed a lot of stuff to do with linear algebra. Quaternions still confuse me though.
