Yes [Self Taught]
Yes [College Degree]
So it's a pretty simple question: Do you want to make video games? Just like Bungie made Halo, and now Destiny; do you want to be a part of that career? If you do, are you planning on going to college for it or are you teaching yourself? Personally, I've been developing a game on my own for about a year now, and I'm looking for like-minded persons who might want to help on the project. I am self taught (video game design degrees are EXPENSIVE!) I do have a LOT more to learn, but plan to finish at least one game in my life time. It's on my bucket list.
