Career Advisor people will Suggest you choose a career after the 12th that comes with good returns and secure your future but that would be a wrong move ahead if you are not interested in any of the general career path and wish to make a career in offbeat vocations and earn a name for yourself in it as a Game Designer.
Now, if you are the one who grew up playing Super Mario and GI Joe and 3d games on television and wanted to check out every new game that came on the market and want to create your own concept game with your imagined creativity then you should know what it is all about and how you can be a part of game designing as a Game Designer.
