World of Video Game Designing
I am trying to make this easier for myself and others to review the forums and articals. I belive that these will be most benificail for people who wants to learn more about game designing and how to get a step into the gaming world's door. I will find Articals and Forums that will provide you resources and tools to practice gae designing on you're own. I will also find some with great information so you can determine wether you want to have a career in this feild or not. There will also be some articals or forums that will show us the future of gaming and how much it has changed through the years.
