It’s never too late to learn to design games….

If you are reading this post, you either are a stalker of mine or you have some sort of interest in video games. For those of you STILL reading this post, if you have ever felt like taking a stab at getting into the video game design world, The Princeton Review came out today with the best of the best Game Design Programs for both undergrad and graduate schools.

While some of the schools on the list are very high-profile (and sporting three-letter acronym names) such as MIT, USC and SMU, there are plenty of smaller schools that fill out the list. I would like to call special attention to #7 on the undergrad list, which is Shawnee State here in Ohio (4,460 students), which I was surprised to see on the list. Check out the top ten here, or head over to the Princeton Review’s website to see the entire list including honorable mentions.


The Princeton Review's top 10 undergraduate schools to study video game design for 2012 are:
1. University of Southern California (Los Angeles, CA)
2. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, MA)
3. University of Utah (Salt Lake City, UT)
4. DigiPen Institute of Technology (Redmond, WA)
