In programming, we hear so much about what tech stack we need to learn or what the new hot technology is.

What we do not talk about much is the mental health aspect behind how you can be a better programmer.

And that often times affects a lot of programmers.

Self-doubting comes into play. And that can have a whole cascade effect in your career.

Doubting yourself can leave you paralyzed. You stop working. You stop doing whatever needs to be done. Your head starts telling a lot of different bad stories.

And... Down the road, it makes a whole lot of difference.

This is a message for all the self-doubting developers out there.

Video game development is not for the faint of heart. It’s an extremely difficult and demanding line of work, and the rewards are not nearly as great as you might think.

I would guess that at last 70 percent of professional programmers have fantasized about becoming video game developers at some point in their lives—hell, I’m fantasizing about it right now.

video game development is difficult. Really difficult. There is a large amount to learn and so much of it is art.

You can easily get in way over your head, where you don’t even know what you don’t know or what is important.

You can certainly teach yourself video game development (I did), but are you going to teach yourself how to make video game graphics, how to design a story and level, 3D modeling, how to use the latest graphics engine, and all the other countless areas of speciality that are required to build one of the complex video games of today?

The thing is... You can actually do that. And the funny thing is that you don't even need to go to college to do that. #GameDevelopment #GameDesign #College

Here are my top 5 reasons why you should NOT go to college to study game development.
