I'm 16 years old. I'm planning my future career and I'm standing on a doorstep and don't know which way to go.
My dream was to create the best game ever. As I was growing up, I started to notice, how my passion for games didn't disappear for the whole 10 years and was/is still growing... Game development still seems too "childish" for my parents and for our family friends and they're stating that I should study something more serious.
And... Well... Without a computer I can... Well, I can make pancakes... And... wash dishes I guess?
I am writing a console based C++ game as my Summer Project for my school, which, I guess, will be my first actual game made from scratch (the other was a simple drag&drop experiment in Game Maker 6).
These doubts about what I can actually do can't let me decide whether I should study something related to game development...
So it would be great to know how to get rid of these doubts and have a stronger opinion in what career I want to follow (game related or not).
