http://www.lake-desire.com/newgameplus/?p=15#comment-56 I think that some of the students do know what video game design entails, but most of them have their big dreams of becoming a designer straight from high school. I noticed it more when the 9th graders were at my school. The 7th and 8th graders are a lot less mature. Boy, I miss those 9th graders! I wish they would not have moved them to the high school! Anyway... if you have some links go ahead and send them to me.

http://www.lake-desire.com/newgameplus/?p=15#comment-50 I agree with the part about technologists having to think like entertainers. Believe it or not, video games are a form of entertainment and people need the skills required to create a game. Think of games like a movie perhaps, one that you can interact with. If you make the movie a whole bunch of special fx, eye candy and nothing else, we won't have a really enjoyable movie. It needs to be engaging, perhaps a story, and above all fun to play and watch. Nearly anyone can play a game, from an infant to a senior. But what is required to make a game is the know how, the tools, and an education. Many people do believe that the entertainees can make an entertaining game, but they won't simply know how to. One way or another, they will find out.

http://www.lake-desire.com/newgameplus/?p=15#comment-44 I guess that's one of the advantages of paying attention to your kids' interests. Do the kids know much about what getting into game design entails, and what the actual jobs are like? I could dig up some links for them.

http://www.lake-desire.com/newgameplus/?p=15#comment-43 There are a lot of kids at the school where I work that dream of going into video game design. I think a lot of them believe that they can get there by just playing their games and becoming experts with their favorites. I agree with the article that they need to get an education and study hard. I often tell the students that (and they are shocked that I actually know something about video games at my age). Maybe one or two will actually take my advice! There are a lot of kids at the school where I work that dream of going into video game design.
