Game jams in class are awesome. Don't miss the Lego lecture, it's the only class that teaches scrum at usc.

Amazing professor. He's still currently working in the game industry so he definitely knows what he's talking about. Some readings to do for the midterm but not too bad. Never used any game making programs but the projects were still doable. We went to the Riot Games' headquarters and will soon head to Blizzard.

Great class. Hideo Kojima came to our class and he may be teaching in the future. Lots of good experience building prototype games.

Pretty easy and really fun class. No prior programming experience required but it helps when it comes time to do your projects (otherwise be prepared to grind through them). You get a lot of insider info from his years in industry and the guest speakers but for the most part, I felt like the projects and pitches were the best learning tools.

Great class if you want experience building games with teams. I built 3 games and several prototypes. They started using Unity toward the end of class which hopefully will be used more.

My class had students from different majors, Cinema, Engineering, Business and others. As a CS major, there is not a lot of programming but many group projects and game building assignments. Contests during class were cool. Great guest speakers and field trip.

If you already like video games, then this class will be super easy. All you really have to do is do all the projects to get a good grade. Go to all the classes because they're pretty fun/interesting anyways. You don't really need any of the textbooks though, so save your money.

This was a class on social games. Very industry focused. We wrote a book and made a game. Lots of work for 2 units, but worth it!

I'm a business major and thought the assignments were hard, but the class was real-world topics and informative.

I'm only a sophomore, but this was the best class i've taken at USC thus far. We went on field trips, including Blizzard. Best part of the class was creating two games from scratch. The software was basic, but this was only an intro class.

Class is heavily focused on industry topics. Great guest speakers and interesting lectures. As a CS major, not much in terms of programming, but great overview of the games industry.

I want a refund from USC. I have never ecountered a lecture who is late and drops names in the business. I asked to provide details on the programing and he didnt know. Why would you pay for someone who doesnt have a technical degree. The guy says he has a biz degree but NO MBA. This class and lecture pulls down the education at USC.

Class is fairly easy and he just gives grades. Overall, the info he teaches is dated and he really isnt that too technical. He says that he is but I am focusing on CS and he doesnt even have a technical degree. He comes to class unprepared and tries to get good reviews by giving away grades. For game novice, its good but not TOO impressive.
