I have had an interest in Game Development for a long time now but have always had the perception that it was heavily "art based" and I have never been great at drawing/sketching. After finding the Game Development SE and Blender SE I have considered attempting Game Development again. With tools like the Unreal Engine, Unity, and Blender out there, where should I start? Is it heavily art based? Besides this SE, are there any other learning tools out there or should I take some classes at my local college? Java, SQL, HTML? (I don't know coding)
Lets assume I am going to try and make a third person shooter type game.
