So, You Want To Make Video Games?

My old friend Pat Lipo from back in the Raven Software days posted this on his Facebook page today and I just had to snag it.

This video is one of the most hilariously depressing looks at video game development I've ever seen! Check out SO YOU WANT TO WORK IN THE VIDEO GAME INDUSTRY and embrace the horror!

Remember the old U.S. Army ads that claimed it was "The Toughest Job You'll Ever Love?" Honestly, that's video game development. Is it as bad as this video implies? Yes. It may actually be worse, in some cases. But if you care enough about it to work on games despite all of the terribleness, you'll probably still love your job.

I know I still do, even 15 years later...
