    Default Environmental Art & Level Design in Video Games

    Is anyone here an environment artist and or a level designer for video games? Or maybe have you been one in the past?

    I used to work in the video game industry and have many friends there still. What would you like to know?

    If I wanted to get into that industry. Environmental art and level design, around that field (in the FPS genre) what would be the best major to choose? And college if there is one?

    I'm assuming Game Art & Design.
    But I've heard of Interactive Design and Game Development and Computational Media are basically the same thing as well.

    Is it basically because the game industry is so new that there is no real "defined" path? Or is there a defined path and I just don't know about it?

    (I'll have my associates of arts in information technology this December, hoping to transfer from the two year college I am at now in January to start my bachelors. I'm 17.)

    Also:
    What did you do in the industry?
    What drove you away from it?

    Curiously enough, one of my closest friends right now is... well, the environmental artist and designer who drew your avatar.

    Here's something fun.

    The most recent comics, by a mysterious guest writer, are the best.
