I’m looking at this college but noticing it is very expensive… Anybody heard anything about this college for this field?

I’m reading a lot of negative reviews online about it so I’m wondering if its really that bad

I can’t comment on the quality of the program(s) offered, but the courses appear to be very expensive. Personally I’d look for something more affordable.

Assuming you’re considering a game-specific curriculum, you might want to consider more traditional education instead: a traditional degree is useful both within and outside of the games industry, whilst games-specific programs can often have a more restrictive focus that can be less valuable if you are unable to find work in games. Some studios also prefer a traditional degree over something games-specific when hiring. The specific programs can have some value, but consider your options carefully before committing to any expensive program.

100% agree.

Admittedly, a good game-focused curriculum would prepare you better but exclusively for game development. IMO, the only benefit to a game-focused degree is if you attend in person *and* get to network socially with people (teachers, TAs, classmates, etc) from or in the game development industry or heavily connected therein.
