I am currently working as a software developer. I studied science in college and used programming for a science project. However, I was able to obtain my first programming-related job a year ago due to connections. However, I am starting to hate the job (personal reasons, not because I dislike software development) and am almost willing to take anything at this point. I recently applied for a software engineer position at a game company and they want to interview me next week.
However, I don't have much interest in computer games. I used to play video games when I was younger, but haven't played many video or computer games the past few years because I find them too addicting.
Would you guys think it is a good idea to work for a game company if you do not have that much interest in games? I still do not have much programming experience, so I am willing to take this job, but am worried that I won't be able to fake my interest in gaming well enough for the interview
