Academics for Game Designers

"A wide variety of skills also makes you an indispensable addition to any game company and guarantees a place of honor in the Cockroach Club: a term derived from the fact that cockroaches can survive a nuclear blast... the occasional layoffs of the games industry. Don’t you want to keep your job when companies inevitably downsize and layoff personnel?'"

Interesting take on what it takes to get into and stay in the game industry from an academic perspective.
