I believe that humans were born with the sole purpose to create. Whether it be a light bulb or an atomic bomb. Either way, we create. If I were to live doing what I dreamed of doing then imagination would take flight because I choose to develop video games. I’ve had this obsession since I was a child. I wanted to pass on my passion for gaming to those who do not play games as often or want to start become gamers themselves. When I succeed in becoming a game developer, then people will have something else in their lives to enjoy.
I believe games can be a healthy way to relieve stress from people. I would like to contribute to that idea by creating games that families can enjoy together or separate. Games should relieve stress based on the game played, the person playing, and how long it is being played. Being a gamer myself let me realize some things about letting games release your pent up stress. Games can intensify most emotions or ideas so it is best to play them under the pretense of wanting to have fun playing them. Also for games to be stress relievers, be it day, evening, or night, people relax and not let the worries of everyday life get in the way of a peaceful time.
I am currently certified in Adobe Photoshop and Dreamweaver. I have taken those courses with the hope of them helping me with the development of characters for the games and websites for the company I plan on building for the game development services I want to provide. I plan on learning and becoming certified in Microsoft Office so I could learn more about software. I have just graduated from high school and I am already enrolled in Full Sail University. I start on September 29, 2014 and plan to go for my bachelor’s degree in Game Development. After words, I plan on finding a gaming company to join and learn from like Square Enix or Unreal Games. When I have enough experience, I then plan on making my own gaming company. I have friends and family that are willing to support my dream and want to me to succeed at it.
Gaming has always been my passion. Now gaming is going to be my career and way of life. That is all I would wish for and that is all I need. Creating video games will become my truth.
