How are video games made? I'm talking about mainstream MMOs like Runescape, World of Warcraft, MapleStory, etc. I realize this may be a very vague question. I really have no clue if I'm approaching this question correctly at all. In % how much of games is coding? How much is 3D design? I'd like to eventually start my own project to make games, starting simply with platformers and flash games I suppose. I think it'd be a great way to get into programming/game design. I'm starting my computer science major this year. Ultimately I'd love to work in video game design but can fall back on general computer programming if I need to. I guess I just need to understand the big picture here. Many thanks.
