Something hit me today. I've already left A level college and I have no idea what I want to do as a career. Before, I used to tell myself "Software Engineering", but I think I knew a long time ago that it's not something I really want to do.
Right now there a three fields in Computing that intrigue me very much (and have for some time). Games Development, OS Development and Hardware (mainly firmware and drivers, not actually designing and building them).
So I'm asking about what sort of skills I need, and things I should get aquainted with for each, but since this is the Games Development forums you may focus on Games Development if you'd like.
Thanks in advance.
