Wow, so many people want to be an author or writer. I'd hate to just sit around and come up with words. I know its a really creative thing to do, but reading and writing is not for me at all. D:

Another good question would be: what do you want to do when you are at 50?
heu... retired ??

Blegh, that's insanely boring and mind-numbing man. You shouldn't stop working, you should work less.

it's not like "stop working" it's just stop working for someone, if you managed your 30 years at works well, then at the age of 50 you should be able to cover your financial needs from the money you've been storing and then just like heisenbergman said
Quote
it as an opportunity to spend more time with family and pursue other interests full-time without having to worry about earning money.
one of the activity i may want to do at that age is teaching kids the basics of programming  Roll Eyes
that will make me feel like a damn boss  Cool

The two biggest (IMO) parts of game development are design and storytelling.

Writing (or typing) is the next best alternative for storytelling.

Well, before I decide that I don't want to be a programmer, I must be a really amazing programmer first.
Once I've made a super amazing program that dominates the industry in sales, then I will decide to be a millionaire.

Genius plan.

Scrap that, I will be a BILLIONAIRE!!!!

I make video games b/c I feel a game is a more interactive film. A game with good cutscenes and story is a good game to me! Plus, I feel like I am in the movie!

Thinking about it.... This question can be very important. Pretty much everyone of us are just an unfortunate accident away from being incapable of performing as programmers (at least not professionally).


I have a friend who nearly was there. Had a motorbike accident and bust up his right wrist. After many surgeries he recovered enough mobility to keep working, but he was very close to being assigned slapped with a disability seal and told he couldn't do his work anymore (receiving a nice disability check though).


I really hope I can opt to move into a team management position if I ever face such a situation.

If we're sharing stories that stop us working, in Feburary I fractured 4 vertebrae in a motorcycle accident.

Wow, sorry to hear that.

I was mostly referring to how crucial the ability to type is to holding a job as a programmer, and any accident that busts up your hands can easily put you out of that market.


4 vertebrae, that's serious on so many levels though. Hope you're doing OK.

I was mostly referring to how crucial the ability to type is to holding a job as a programmer, and any accident that busts up your hands can easily put you out of that market.

Its at least something you should think about - do you do more effort to protect your arms and hands (which ultimately means that you live very carefully and minimize risk) or do you just live your life assuming that nothing will go wrong? The professional thing to do would be the former, but on the other hand - work is not the #1 priority in life.

I can testify to how easy it can be - in January I broke my ankle because I slipped on an effing pool of ice on the floor; I couldn't do any programming work for about a month (operation, recovery, etc.), and then for another month I was working at home lying on the couch; not exactly comfortable and I was only 50% productive, but at least I could do something. I could have also broken fingers, both my wrists, an arm, a shoulder or a collar bone depending on how I landed and then I'd probably be out of the running for a far longer time. All because I didn't pay attention to where I was walking, I was too heavily engaged in conversation with coworkers.
