What do you like most about creating games?

Games really move me - I see the artistic appeal of a good game the way a lot of people admire good movies/books. I've felt real joy and sadness while playing games, become attached to characters, and enjoyed the feeling of stepping into the main role. Though I have no experience creating games, I have been a singer and an actress in the past. Putting on a good show for someone; creating something that surprises, moves, entertains them; putting in the hard work in anticipation of what their reaction will be; I suspect there are elements of this in game creation as well. Or did you mean less broadly? I love code, I suppose. It makes no sense, generally I'm a creative type who can't sit still, but when it comes to solving a math problem or trying to write a program, I can get lost in the task, I embrace the trial-and-error of it and I get a little rush when it works.

How would you describe your level of experience in game development?

Beginner - I have a couple of small projects under my belt at this point, but no big group projects or published works yet.

Is game creation something you do for fun, or is it more of a professional interest? Please describe.

What part of game dev are you most into? Programming, animating, AI, 3D modeling, marketing, etc?

Programming

Introduction

I'm a lifelong gamer...I particularly loved my C64 and interactive fiction games growing up in the '80s. I play all sorts now, but I'm passionate about RPGs. Recent CSCC graduate with a focus on game programming.
