Being a game designer is my dream job and what I am trying to shoot for.
The mandatory education level tends to be a BS degree a CS degree and over four years of game designing using whatever system they are currently using.
Requirements are handling the high stress job and making deadlines. Alongside working with computers and having some degree in the field of computer coding they are using. But the main one is being able to complete projects almost completely by yourself.
The median salary is 58,894 which is not bad considering that is the median. By the end of your career the pay tends to be around 100,000
In order to get this job you need programming skills, time management, and at least a high school diploma but the the more degrees you have the better the job you get and often a bachelors degree really helps.
