    I've heard it's one of the worst programming jobs since so many people want to do it. I used to own the stock of a video game maker, that was a good investment

    That kind of money comes from a long line of success and I would argue that the success is not because of the programming, but the storyline and situations (stealing cars and shooting people is nothing new).

    If you want to give it a whirl, there is a 'level editor' in Happy Wheels. I've personally made 28 levels on that site (bohicau1369).

    A friend of mine has been programming games for ages. He's made and lost his shirt several times over.

    30 years ago, Bill was a little rotund. Bike riding has slimmed him down some:
