It seems that more universities are now offering degrees in computer game design. If I were just entering college now, I would seriously look at this and not necessarily from a coder’s point of view. I’d like to get into the design aspect of the games and/or the marketing and community relations aspects as well. I think with things like wikis and blogs there is an opportunity for a game, specifically an MMOG, to expand beyond the tradition emal/forums method of communication with its community.
Then I’d want to play them.
