About time there is someone admitting this. From what I have read and from people I know this seems to be the least fun/rewarding industry to work in.
That's a major problem with developer companies this days, no just games development. I'm a program writer for 7 years now, and in every single company i worked they don't care about the complexity or the effort to develop. They just want results and fast. I'm sick of it, for two years now i am thinking in a new career and leave the programing stuff to personal things.

bye bye pandemic loved your mercenaries series.not in the industry myself but i think programmers are closer to artists then "normal jobs" but its an industry and the shareholders of these companies want there pound of flesh.They dont care how good a product they produce just how many units can be sold.Just look at iw's latest pile of tat 5hr single player,no dedicated servers and a price tag to make you think youve bought a ps3 game instead of a pc game kerching 1 billion dollars in the bank.This is the future
