The reason why I had chosen this career is because I have noticed that soon technology will be bigger than what it is to this day. Especially video games, because most people play video games from time to time or every day. Video game designing would be the field of work that I want to get into because video games seem to be the main use in technology and everyone's favorite thing to do in their spare time. Plus I would design games that have never been seen before and make them better than any other game ever played.
