What can i do with a degree in Game design in the military or is there no hope?
I love video games and would like to get my masters in game design because it is a fast growing industry. I also want to join the navy being the son of a navy mom, dad , and step dad. I would love to do game design after i serve in the military but i would want to be able to go to college and use those skills in the military. People with a masters in game design have gotten jobs as Advertising and Promotions Managers, Market Research Analysts and Marketing Specialists, Marketing Managers, Producers and Directors, Software Quality Assurance Engineers and Testers, Video Game Designers, and Writers and Authors. If any of these jobs are available in the military as officer positions, please help. I really want to serve but I also love video games. PLEASE HELP!

It depends, are you wanting to go with game art or programing? Programming is useful anywhere that changes in computer code is needed. Game Art is what I am in but I cannot list any explicit things that this might help with in the Military. I would say, learn what you want and if you do not need the paper degree... More

There are technology jobs specially in the air force but i doubt there is an importance to designing video games in the military. Its the militry your priority is combat not enterainment & most definitely there is no Video Game Officer hahaha do you hear yourself sounds like you are not cut out for the military.

While I say that it is mostly hopeless I remember hearing about computer battle simulations being used as part of training. If you can design something that is good enough to be used in training then that will be good but aside from that as a possibility the two don't mix too well at all

The Army has game designers. Have you seen America's Army?

Most simulators are designed by private contractors so there really is no field in the military for game designer. The is tech. jobs like info specialists and other related computer fields available.
