"Amazing lectures" "Better Like Group Projects" "Inspirational"

Very relevant if you want to make games for a career. Midterm involved a lot of writing, but no final exam, just a project.

One of the best classes I have taken at USC. I learned stuff you typically don't get from books or boring professors. He teaches you about real world problems, how to work with teams, and ultimately how to level yourself up. Definitely a class worth taking.

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.

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!
