Your childhood dream?

I've wanted to be game developer sense I was 11/12? Now I'm 14 and I am a game developer! Dreams do come true!
I meant by becoming a real developer. Flash imo is not real game development since you can't make it on consoles such as PS3, Wii, DS, 3DS, Wii U, etc. Plus it's too easy for real game development.

You're not allowed to define what game development is.

I wanted to be a game creation forum user. And have a stupid username. Result.

Unsurprisingly game developer ^ I wrote my first text adventure set in the shadowrun universe on a pc with a yellow and black monitor at about age 11. I've not really ipmroved my skills since then, just found better tools.

That is not true!

There is actually someone who uses this program who went the other way, he has had a successful career in PC and console games and is now making flash with Stencyl, I think he would disagree with you.

Like I've said, it's my opinion. Flash is too easy compared to console programming (excluding PC).

Flash is "too easy"?  Yet you're using Stencyl, a program that promotes easier game development.

Try Adobe Flash and make a game from there using AS2 or AS3. Tell me how that goes.

Now as for the current posts thanks guys for you info so far. They're really helpful and it will be interesting as to which ones I choose.

Yeah yeah, I'm about to go with the cliché "I wanted to design video games" thing. Of course, as I got older, I was kind of like, "Yeah, probably won't happen". Yet here I am: no vet by any means but going after it! Eventually, I hope to publish a game to a major console platform.

Seriously kids, if you have a genuine dream, go after it.
Do NOT PM me your questions, because I likely will not respond. If I have replied to your question on the forum, keep using that topic. Thanks!

I'm only 13. In the future I'm getting into real development. I'm going to use Stencyl to make a quick buck to help get a UDK licenece when I'm 18 or whatever age I need to be. Before I started Stencyl, I was considering JavaScript, but I want to get this done fast. To tell you the truth, there are so many things I can't even do wth Stencyl. Don't get me wrong, Stencyl is great for stuff, but so much I can't do, but it's flash, not super real development. So I understand that.
