Garrett Fuller: Reader Mail

MMORPG.com's Garrett Fuller returns with a new Staff Blog where he answers questions from our readers about MMOs and the industry in general.

Ok so last week we had two major questions come up in Reader Mail:

1. How do I get involved in the game industry, in any capacity?

Here is my best answer.

To succeed in any industry you need to build up contacts. You can be the best programmer in the world or have the best game design ever, if you don't start getting to know people in the business you won't get anywhere.

So, how do you start. The best beginning is to attend a convention. If you are in some area try to get to one:

Northeast - PAX East, NY Comicon

Southeast - Dragon Con

Middle America - GenCon

Northwest- PAX

Mid West - DICE (Vegas), AGDC (Texas)

California (damn you) - GDC, E3, San Diego Comicon

Check out the Reader Mail.
