Ok so bare with me here. Ever since I was a little kids, I've wanted to make make video games.
I've taken all classes in my high school that deal with it, I've kept up with the news, and etc.
But I live in OHIO. There is literally nothing to do with Video Games in the state, save for some courses in college. The closest one is up north. In CANADA!
And most of them are in California, so as you can guess I'm really stressed about this.
I I want advice on what the heck I should do. If you have any.

Can you do it?
Statistically, no. You're probably going to fail. BUT -- unlike almost every other crazy creative dream that goes nowhere, learning to make video games involves learning very valuable computer skills.
You don't need you video game courses, you need programming skills or level building skills. If you can have those, you can make your own games or otherwise market yourself. Again, statistically you will probably not succeed. However 1) you might 2) it makes for a great creative outlet 3) you will have a reasonable path to financial security.0
