Post subject: Jesus, game programming learned for free!
|Being an immigrant from Vietnam and living in the USA for the last 41 years of my life or such, I notice America tends to value education highly.
In fact, America values education SO highly that they often give out grants to qualifying low-income people. I did at one time have a student loan out too.
So the point I am trying to make is if you want to be a game programmer, you do NOT need to go to Harvard!
You can have just the basics such as internet. Then you can research a lot of free literature.
Remember, Borland Turbo C 2.01? Well, at one point in time it was a fully professional paid product. Now they make it for free. They do sell a professional updated version now a days too. However the preview version should be free the last I looked.
I hear MASM is free now with certain distributed packages.
Although you are poor, it is no excuse. Just program.
