    I would suggest the one which is more comp sci oriented as it will set you up well for not only games tech but other tech as well just in case or the middleware side as well.

    What maniac said. If you’d give more information on what you actually want and phrase it in a proper manner we’d be more able to help you.

    With skills like your spelling, getting aggrivated under pressure coming up to a deadline due to your own fault, and then cussing and taking it out on others, I’d look for a producer related games course… you already have the basics :)

    To the OP, if you’re sure you’re actually “into” computers then I’d go with a general Computer Science degree to start off with. It will give you more options when your finished and will also give you a nice grounding in both programming and the basics to some of the areas you’ll be covering in a more specialised Game Development degree.

    I’m in my 3rd year of the Computer Applications degree here in DCU and I love it. I’d also recommend the Computer Science degree down in UL and I hear the course in Trinity is meant to be good aswell. I’m not going to recommend one over another so just check up the course contents on the net and see which one takes your fancy.

    G’luck with the CAO anyway and don’t panic, the change of mind option is still valid for another few months so you’ll still have some time to narrow down your options. :D

    I was more referring to the question of what area he was looking into pointing out as its the programming thread, its probably coding he wants into, but yeah, education thread would be a good place to look :)

    Are you sure that you want to go into game programming? It’s important to have researched the field heavily so you can be sure that a specialised course is for you. Comp sci may be a better option if you’re looking to do a degree. Remember, programmers have to be able to clearly document their work (or that’s the theory anyway) so I hope that you can spell better than that. The excuse that it’s just a forum is never acceptable. You should spell your best at all times.

    Use the Courses section to research those that you’re interested in. Good luck!

    will say now im in the industry about 4 months i havent played games as much as i used to, because ive been busy programming stuff for them and by the end of the day last thing i want to see is a video game ;(

    So choose wisely when your considering a games career, is it so you can live the fantasy of you’ll be playing games all day & getting paid to do so, coz the reality is far from this, sure you get to play games from time to time, but thats so you can recreate the bug the QA guy told you about :)

    Same with me.

    It could also be because I am poor and I drink all my money.

    I play more, but then again, I have no life anyway.
    But the question is, would you work somewhere else? There are times I’ve questioned this, surely we could all easily give up games and work for a bank and make lots more money, but its not about that is it, its about creating something thats fun rather than a super-special spread-sheet. There are a lot of compramises you have to make to do this job…
