Yes [Self Taught]
Yes [College Degree]
I do hope to fully break in one day. I voted college degree but I'm not exactly studying game design/development at school. Picked up a couple of degrees in Computer Engineering so far and lately decided to take as many game development classes as I can as well as doing a few projects on the side to build a good portfolio and land an industry job. Managed to get an internship last summer which will undoubtedly go quite a ways to getting another position but I still don't consider myself "broken in" yet.
