Working your ass off in the gaming industry to see your piece of art get butchered by biased reviewers, banned because of Fox News biased reporting... only to hope the gamers will acknowledge it for what it is. Good luck devs.

That is something we are going to look at in a future article. What working in the games industry is really like with quotes from developers in huge companies down to iPhone indie devs. Most articles point out how great making games are, and they can be but we want to give people a realistic experience of what to expect.

Been there, done that. Worked two years for what's called Blizzard Activision these days. Long hours, weekend work and lots of deadline pressure. Pay also isn't that great. Compliance/Certification process with Sony, MS and Nintendo is a pain in the a.. too. Eventhough you get to see and play games first, meet some good people and can brag to other gamers, IMO it isn't worth it. Some of the biggest games I worked on: WOW, Riddick, Simpsons, Starcraft Ghost(cancelled) and among many other, believe it or not, Barbie Horse Adventures!
