Game Programming general questions... and Math?
I'm in a sort of weird predicament. Let me start out with a brief synopsis of why I am where I am now:
Here's my first question: How likely is it that I would also enjoy much harder languages if I immensely enjoy my simple web page languages? I know they are entirely different, I know the first response will always be "you don't know until you try," and really, I'm getting to it... but has anyone else done this? Gone into programming because of web pages and enjoyed it?
Here's my second question: Math. Let's talk math. I'm good at math, really I am. I'm in Calculus 1 right now and am passing with a A- to Bish (he hasn't posted grades, I'm guessing). I get math concepts. I understand it. I can do it. But, I don't like it. I don't mind algebra at all (easy as cake), and trig was decent when I took it. I'm just wondering how much calculus has to do with game programming. I can do math, I just don't want to. I understand there will be math in game programming, don't get me wrong, but I don't want to be a math genius and labor over intensive math problems my whole day. How much math is involved with game programming? Are there certain areas of game programming I could go into that aren't as math intensive? I've heard some people say I have to take math in my major just to see if I have a logical way of looking at things, I've heard people say game programming is only math, I've heard some parts of game programming are math-intensive, some aren't... I'm totally lost. I'm really not sure who to listen to.
I know this is long winded but I'm really having a miniature crisis. I would love more than anything to program games. It sounds like a good idea... I just want to make sure it is a good idea. If all else fails, I am also a web design minor. :p
