I know this thread doesn't have much purpose, but I've been seeing so many other 'how many hours per day do you spend on the computer' type threads, so I figure I'm not setting any lameness records. Anyway, I just wanted to see other people's opinions, what do you think is a realistic 'timeline' for someone who is looking to get into the gaming industry. I.E when you started programming, what you've accomplished before heading off to college, etc etc. I would imagine none of this to be written in stone, because it basically comes down to how good you are capable of becoming, I guess. Well, let's hear your opinions.
