Yahoo! has assembled a list of the top jobs that, although somewhat new, they’re top earning professions. On that list is the Video Game Designer, more specifically for smaller companies. The booming $9 billion industry has seen successful designers within big companies like EA, but now smaller companies are offering some hefty salaries. Additionally, college degrees aren’t necessarily mandatory for the position, where a strong skill set can easily be enough to qualify a candidate.
It’s great to see a positive article about the gaming industry, after constantly reading about how bad the industry is for the youth of the world.
