In a way I guess you can say portfolio is all that matters... but I hear both sides to this. Some say this is the way to get a foot in the door and others say different. I am only 18 years and a freshman soon to be sophomore in college. I need advice on what I should do... Should I just take the 3 years till I am out of college and just practice by myself or should I join indie teams? I have been part of some in the past so I know how things work in them.
Do you necessarily need to have a released title or have worked on any mod/indie games to land a job in the industry?
