Hmpf yeah same here, video kind of depresses me. Even though I know how to program on multiple platforms and have learned how to 3d model and animate I still am very nervous about my prospects in this rigorously competitive field. Especially since I will be looking for work in foreign countries as my native country still does not have a game industry let alone a studio.
The video describes me to some extent, I spent most of my adult life in love with playing games. But what i've also realized that you can grow from that, you can benefit from the experience you have playing many genres of games when you finally hunker down and decide that you really want to put the effort into pursuing your dream. I already knew how to program, I hence spent over 600 hours in the last 6 months learning how to use the various tools -from the UDK, to 3DS Max to Photoshop- in order to have something substantial to present when I finally take the step and travel to seek out my career in the game industry. Not just my ideas and dreams but something tangible, a proof of concept of my skills. What I'm trying to say is that, gamers, in my honest opinion the first step is dedication and the last is hardly a B.S in Computer Science or Animation. The last step should be you toiling for endless hours, with your eyes bleeding trying to get those damn morph targets working in your game.
I'm traveling on the 14th of February, wish me luck.
