It seems every time I look into my future prospects, it seems less necessary to go to university.
I THINK I want to get into the gaming industry, but a lot of jobs just need the skills, and some experience.
What I'm thinking is I'd rather spend 3-4 years developing my current skills in art and programming, and maybe working towards developing my own game with a friend, all the while looking for prospective jobs.
This would save me time, effort and money, and it just seems better than going to uni. Sure I miss out on the university experience but it sounds mostly bullshit anyways, I can go out and party when I want.
I'd like to move out from home soon anyway, a couple of friends are staying in Sheffield for university, so I could house up with them for a year or two while I carry on doing my thing.
I don't know, it just seems everyone tells me to go to university, but the more I look into it the less appealing it is.
