Love playing video games? Got lots of original ideas? Think you can make a better video game than what’s out there? Want to get a job as a video game designer, artist or programmer? That was me about 12 years ago before I started working in the video game industry. A few years later, disillusioned, I left the industry and started working for myself. Video games are a huge part of our culture and naturally, lots of people want to get involved.

The fact that such a disappointing game like Bless even made this list goes to show that there's still pent up demand out there for an MMORPG.
