Carleton vs Ryerson for Game Design path
I got accepted to both, but not sure which one's better for what I want to do.
- Has an actual game design course
- Heard from one comment that its first year course was very simple because many going into it lack a programming base--I don't know whether this is a good thing (assuming it's true) to give me less stress, or a bad thing because I wouldn't really be learning anything
- I'd have to spend more money on residence
- Has a computer science course, of which I heard (from one comment) that the game development field would rather take someone with a pure CompSci path?
- Heard it was very hard?
- No need for residence
Anyone went to either school who can tell me what those courses are like there? I don't care about school spirit or whatever either--just course difficulty, enjoyment factor, outlook, etc, and maybe a confirmation to either of those comments I've heard things from.
