So you want to design video games?

If you want to make a career in the gaming industry it is important to get the experience and skills needed for it. So how do you get there? How do you actually get the skills for someone wanting to hire you in the games industry? It does not really matter what school you went to, what matters is what you know and what you can do how good you are at it. However, what a good school can do is speed up the process and make you learn stuff in the right order and not skip important things that you would otherwise have to learn by yourself. That plus being in school means you meet and get to know other people, teachers and student that may become your future colleagues or may recommend you for a job. A video game design school is a great place to network.
