Professional game developer living in Seattle. I tend to focus on networking and server-side code. I also spend a lot of time thinking about architecture, developer processes and tools, and the logistics of running different types of multiplayer games.

If I had my way, 90% of all entertainment media would be about spaceships. Pew pew.

comment Game Development Degree vs Computer Science Degree
I certainly agree about needing critical thinking skills, I'd even go beyond that to say innate talent in general. (I saw may fair share of smart people just not able to hit the 'pointer epiphany' in school..) And some schools certainly can have terrible programs. Anything that involves that much of your time/money is certainly worth plenty of research and planning. As Tetrad said, schooling isn't going to get you a job - school should be less of a credential to show employers that you finished and more an opportunity to prepare for that job as much as possible. :)
