I'm average at maths. Maybe a tad below average. If I was going into a normal career I'd be fine. But I want to create video games. Is a career in video game development still on the cards for me?
I want to be a creative director, but I don't just want to write screenplays, create 3D models and draw concept art (areas I excel at.). I want to actually touch the code. I've been learning web development now for 8 months, and I understand pretty in depth concepts such as serverside fragment caching, and it would damn depressing to throw all those skills away and just hire some programmers when I move into video games. I want to develop alongside them. Is developing video games (with a team) similar to web development, in that it's all OOP and logic but with relatively little arithmetic? I'm not on about creating a 3D engine, I'm sure that's filled with physics and theorems of momentum, I'm on about simply using a ready made 3D engine.
Do you need to be a substantially better at maths than most to develop video games?
