Computer and Video Game Designers
If you like to play video or computer games, you are already
familiar with them. You will also need to learn a programming
language like C++ or Java, and you'll need a good working knowledge
of the hardware platform for which you plan to develop your games
(video, computer, online, etc.). In high school, learn as much as
you can about computers: how they work, what kinds there are, how
to program them, and any languages you can learn. You should also
take physics, mathematics, chemistry, and computer science. Since
designers are creative, take courses in art, literature, and music
