Hiya - Sean here

Hi everyone! Just introducing myself! I'm Sean, one of the regular writers on the main Game Addicts site!

As well as writing games for a living (I'm one of those coding types I'm afraid), I'm also a big fan of the platform/arcade adventure genre, and am dismayed at the lack of originalty in games these days (old gaming fart!)

You'll find me playing: Katamari Damacy, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, Prince of Persia, Shadow of the Colossus.

You'll not find me playing: Need for Speed, GTA, First Person Shooters (because I just don't have the reactions any more! ).

Hey! I like your posts on GA.

What type of coding do you do?

I'm not a fan of GTA, but I'm all for a nice FPS or racing game. Unless of course people consider GTA a FPS.

Hi mck, glad you like my posts! :smile:

Coding wise I'm doing high-end mobile phone games (been with the company 6 months, nothing released that I've worked on yet). I've worked on PS1, PS2 (nothing published on PS2 sadly ) and some of the Jakks TV Games series.

See ya around!

Hey Sean,

I'm wondering, what's the gaming business like? Is it profitable, and do you enjoy it? Never know, something I may be looking into.

Actually that's a good question as I'm interested as well. If you had to chose between computer programming, program development, or game design/programming, which would you chose? Why would you chose game programming or why wouldn't you chose it? I'm just curious as I'm seriously considering going into the business as well.

Since people seem to be interested, I've started a thread named "Working in the Games Industry?" on the General Chat forum, which seems like a better place than my introduction thread to discuss such matters! See ya there.
