    Do it!

    Because making games is one of the best jobs you can do with a computer. Its hard work but you get a wicked kick out of t.

    I would see the decision being down to whether you like programming enough or not. I don’t see your love of games getting you through this course if you don’t at least moderately like programming….

    Ultimately it is your decision though, but if you don’t have any other options lined up at present maybe it’s worth a punt if your on the fence?

    You’re right. You’re the only person who can decide what you want to do. No one else can make that decision for you. The only thing people can do is advise you along the way. But people can only do that if you give us enough information and ask good questions. It makes it even easier if people don’t have to decrypt your message! :P

    There’s loads of info about programming and games courses on this site and other sites on the web. A quick search will turn up a lot of information to help make your decision.

    Good luck and welcome to the community.
