I was born in a traditional Chinese family and I was taught to have a good command over the textbook knowledge, maintain an excellent academic result and cultivate some serious hobbies in order to have a successful life. I am very big fan of video games, and my favorite video game was looked down by many people in China. Playing games are regarded as an activity of negligence towards one’s duties. My parents used to tell me that, ‘if you play a video game now, you would go for nothing in the future’. During my college life, so as to comply with the expectations of my parents I chose economic as my major which was most popular in China. I tried to gain economics knowledge but I found out I didn’t have too much interest, hence encountered some serious language difficulties. This had a very detrimental impact on my grades.It is for this reason that I have lost a year of my college in perplexity, until the day when I saw the news about graduate school which focuses on gaming production.
It was a rude awakening for me, the dream which I wanted to pursue was right by my side. In the cultural blend of the country, I can pursue my favorite thing as a career and as a dream. I think that once people bring in their favorite things into focus, they have a happy life and more likely to succeed as a career. I love video games and I also believe that I have the ability to succeed in the game business, so I have decided to apply for the game production program in your reputed school. This would lay the foundation for a career as a professional game producer. Also, I believe that the course offered by your institute is one of the best in globally and hence learning from the best would definitely inculcate the best knowledge in me which I would try and use to achieve my future goals and become proficient in the arena of gaming production.When I was in elementary school, I played the first game of my life, ever since the beginning of my gamer life. The game made me love the fantasy world it had and I started to think about how to set up my own story and a background in the form of a game.
