And your parents said all that video game playing would get you nowhere! If you really take your gaming seriously, you could take it to college — New York University is going to start offering degrees in video game design, research, and development.
Higher education has never seemed more appealing; gaming doesn't just have to be something you do in between classes.
Next Fall, NYU's course load will increase to add classes like The History of Donkey Kong and Feminist Theory: Princess Peach's Resistance. Just kidding about those course titles, but a girl can dream.
In the meantime, would you major in video games?
