Why games?

The question that I sometimes find hard to answer is what makes creating a game so much fun that I want to spend the rest of my life in the industry? So many people burn-out after a couple of games. I often think what if this happens to me.

So I would like to hear from you, why are you so interested in the gaming industry? How long will you keep on making games?

Another entertainment industry that I’m really interested in is movies. Making a film compared to a game is so much easier and quicker.

Today I went in for a casting call (extras) for the upcoming Transformers movie. I must say that it was a pretty good experience. Waiting in line for 2 hours to fill out a piece of paper and have my picture taken. If I do get the “part” of being one of the many high school students maybe I’ll finally be able to draw the line.

Of course the good thing is that maybe there is no need for me to draw a line at all. If I can embrace both film and games I think I’ll be happy with my job.
