You need to take courses like computer science or software engineering, interactive media, multimedia and computer games design and animation, graphic design, fine art or illustration. Besides that, you need to be creative, imaginative and original and have problem-solving skills.

A good place to start to see whether you want to do it is talk to current designers. It doesnt have to be BioWare or someone major, you can find independent developers. See what they like and don't like about designing. Don't be discouraged but realize the challenges.

Good luck son. For every job available in the gaming industry there are 1,000 people who want that job. Although you could be the one in 1,000 who gets it you need to make an alternative plan in case it doesn't work out. Major in computer science, minor in business administration. Better yet major in mechanical engineering minor in CS.

Find a video on how to write in java, make something useful, and get noticed. Even though they're nice to show, Developers aren't looking for people with degrees
