What do you need to design video games?

Well, if you would really like to take up a career in game design, You would probably have to go to a certain college, but, For beginners, there is a very easy-to-use program created by Mark Overmars called Gamemaker. This is just for fun, but you can really go far with it. You can download gamemaker 7.0 at yoyogames.com for free!

I hope this was helpful.
