Computer Games Personal Statement Example 2

My interest in computer games started from an early age and I would like to pursue a career in computer game design and programming.

My interest in computer games began when I was 8 when I first played on my parents' Super Nintendo. Since then I have wondered how computer games have been made and have wanted to be involved in making a game. I have since decided to pursue a career in computer game design.

During my spare time I enjoy reading fantasy novels as well as game magazines, where I can catch up on the latest game news as well as learn about the different aspects of a computer game career. I also enjoy drawing and painting, both of which I hope will be a valuable ability to help me use when expressing my video game ideas.

I also realise the importance of keeping active especially since my IT career will involve many long hours of me at a desk looking at a computer screen. I like to play sports especially football, hockey and American pool.

I currently have a part-time job at McDonalds where I have worked 4 days a week since 25th November 2007. With the money I earn from this I use it to buy computing equipment to help me get more experience in programming.

I am attending a two year IT national diploma at Sussex Downs College where I hope to gain the necessary skills needed to succeed in the computer games industry.

I have been learning to use programming languages such as: visual basic; machine code and gamemaker, all of which I enjoy using.

Far too short, needs more

Far too short, needs more information about you and why you are more suited to the course than somone else who has also played a nintendo.

Quite short and unintersting

Quite short and unintersting :(


So, apart from playing a SNES and using one or two programs, it seems your only qualification is working at McDonalds for 3 years? Not looking good for you there...


Sadly.. "Boo" was right. This statement is painstakingly bad, it almost looks fake.
