    Hi, I am finishing in next month Computer Games Development in college and I am still not sure where I really want to study: Abertay (Game Design) or Edinburgh Napier (Games Development). And that's why I wanted to ask about opinions about these universities. Which one seems to be better for future in game industry? Which one has better opinions, lecturers, or anything? And what is the most annoying in these places?
    Basically just all pros and cons.
    Thanks for answers

    I'm going into the gaming industry too, not via the same route. I was stuck between Abertay and Napier. If I could have gone to Abertay, I would have, however some of the content for me wasn't compatible. I'm going to Napier instead and following a route more tailored to the specific areas of study I want to learn.
    Both universities have got great reasons to study there. Edinburgh has a great success rate and it's the capital, Abertay is where some of Scotland's biggest companies and brightest in the gaming industry studied, not to mention it's pretty prestigious for doing gaming courses. Either one will be great for a future career.
    But for me, I went Edinburgh! Maybe see you there in September! If not, good luck with your decision.
