How To Get A Job In Video Games: G4 Presents G4 University


Posted September 8, 2011 - By Kevin Kelly

G4 University wants to enroll you into the "How To Get A Job In Video Games" course, and the good news is that the enrollment fee is free. Playing video games is incredibly fun, which is probably why you're here reading this. But wouldn't you love to turn your obsession and love for pixellated playtime into a career? Now when people tell you that work isn't all fun and games, you can turn around and tell them that yes, it actually IS games. And fun as well.

Starting on Monday, September 12, we'll have an entire week's worth of information for you, and you won't have to read a single textbook. We'll have multiple features every day like "How To Be A Video Game Producer," a video look inside the making of Gears of War 3, interviews with industry notables like Ken Levine, the BioWare Doctors Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka, Pete Wanat, and a look inside the video game programs at Northeastern University, the University of Utah, The Guildhall at SMU, along with the Gnomon Workshop and MIT's GAMBIT program.

It's an entire education aimed at helping you get into the games, and we'll be covering every facet of the industry. Stay tuned next week as it all unfolds, and keep it here all week for daily new G4U content. Veni Vidi Videogame!
