Choosing a degree concentration
I'm closing in on the time where if I wanted a concentration with my degree I would have to declare it soon, however I can't decide which one I want. My 2 options are Security and Gaming.
Security is a VERY fascinating topic for me and will be very mentally stimulating, however, after reading up on it some it seems extremely math heavy(number theory, discrete math, patterns, etc) and math isn't one of my better subjects. Security seems a more secure(pun intended) option as far as job stability goes but it also seems more stressful knowing that one mistake I make can cost the company millions in trade secrets, lawsuits for leaked employee information, etc.
Gaming may not be as complicated but sounds like a blast. I'm a male 18-24 age bracket who programs and enjoys video games. It just makes sense. I know that the military uses "gaming software" for simulation training and such but if I was to get into this field I would want to develop video games no simulation training software. This isn't as math heavy(still requires some semi complex calculus, statistics, etc) but there's also alot of graphics required(I can't draw to save my life).
I'm curious for feedback from people who've worked in these fields and any advice anyone can give.
