Yeah, it’s been a (very) long time that I haven’t write anything anywhere because I was very busy with stuffs at university, and I also have just found a great game which is Uncharted Waters Online. Great game with unique gameplay. My IGN is MotionApe if you guys want to meet me in-game.
During my absence of writing, I also had a research of what career should I take in the future. Many opportunities, but few interest. Which means that I can be anything, but that ‘anything’ might not fit with what I really want in my life. Then I did some research, watch some motivating videos from YouTube, and I tried to look my own interest.
Okay, first I know my interest. What I like to do in my daily life (eventhough it doesn’t sound serious), but yeah, I like to play games. I like first-person shooting like Battlefield, Call of Duty, and Counter Strike, RPG game like Persona, Suikoden, life-simulation such as The Sims 3, real-time strategy such as Age of Empires, and MMORPG like UWO and Ragnarok. My friend, Dion, gave me a very wonderful video from YouTube which inspired me a lot to work in the Game Industry. Specifically, I want to work in EA Games in Australia (might go to Los Angeles or Montreal).
Why do I want to work in gaming?
I love gaming, and I enjoy it. I have fun when I am playing video games, and I want to share the fun and happiness that I feel with everybody. How to do it? How to share my ideas and creativity? How to show them my world? One day, I know it that by working in the Game Industry, I can transfer the fun that I feel to the players all around the world.
What position that I will take in the game industry?
Game Designer. Why? First, I am not really good in programming and art. But I have ideas about games that I want to make. I want to create the world with the help of my future team. Game Designers have the responsibility to make the game fun. To make sure that players will not get bored, innovative, engaging, etc. Overall, the game should be fun and that is the job that I will do.
Why EA Games?
Cuz’ great games come from there. I have played EA games since I was still in elementary school. I couldn’t remember the games that I have played, but I remember for sure that I loved to play The Sims in my old computer. Mom used to scold me because I played all the time. I want to be there. I want to be in the part of their victory. Other games such as Battlefield and Medal of Honor are also my favorite sequels of their games. With their achievements, I want to join them and be the part of their greatness.
How do I start all this?
Currently, I am studying at Binus International and taking Information Systems major. Hopefully, I can transfer my credits to ATMC or Victoria University in Melbourne. I will continue my study there and develop myself. First step after I graduate? Of course, EA Melbourne!
Yes! That is my target for my future career! I want to create games, I want to share the fun, and I want to work in EA. So many and so big vision that I have. I need to study hard and work hard to achieve my dreams.
I really hope that my girlfriend, my family, and my friends will pray for me so I will succeed in my new journey to Australia.
Aight! That means I need your support too! ^_^
Okay I am done, it’s not raining again now and I will pick up Grace from her school. Catch you all later!
