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.
