I'm a junior-level developer, currently working full time and trying to get experience with working with ASP.NET MVC. I love web development, and want to continue to pursue it as my career, but I also love gaming and have done a few game tutorials with Monogame/XNA, and love that as well.
For anyone that has been in this situation, Can you tell me, from experience, if you noticed any form of degenerative results when trying to split focus between a full-time career in another field and beginning game development? I am looking for concrete examples of people who managed to split their time, and what their experience was like. I'm concerned that if I focus on game development on my spare time, then my growth in web development might suffer. I hope to use your input to determine for myself, how I should split up my free time, and manage my "Extracurricular" web projects, AND game development projects, so that I don't end up as a jack of all trades, master of none. I don't know why this is such a hard decision for me. :(
