But at the end of my university studies, I realized that Psychology is not what I want to do for the rest of my life and I suddenly became interested in programming for some unknown reason. So I picked up the book "Sams Teach Yourself C++ in One Hour a Day" (totally not possible btw), finished the book, and began on my first game project. I created my first pong clone after about 2 weeks. Then I got lucky and was accepted for a 3-month internship as a web developer even though I had zero knowledge in that area.
Now its been close to 2 and a half months and my internship is ending. My boss has offered to hire me as a full-time permanent staff at the end of my internship. However, as much as I enjoyed my time here and enjoy web development work, I feel like my interest is still more inclined towards the games sector and I know that that's where I want to end up eventually or at least be able to try to see if I like it.
My question is, should i take up his offer and continue learning web development skills? Is there any point in that? Maybe I could work and learn game programming during my free time?
Or should I move on and commit all my time to learning game programming? Maybe I could self-study at home, create some stuff to add to my portfolio and then try to find an opportunity at a games company?
Or should I go back to school and get a computer science degree?
What to do, what to do??.. If any of you programmers out there could give me some advice, I would really appreciate it. thanks!
