Suppose i were a CompSci Grdauate but i had never worked at a software company before, but instead built a bunch of video games and apps. Would me not working at a company lower my chances of getting a job? (Sorry i posted something similar in another forum, just hoping to get more responses)

No it wouldn't if you were applying for a role as a 'working from home' producer of piece work.
The further challenge is that employers know that they can train in technical skills if they have to, they can't train in soft skills like being a good team member. So if you don't bring that evidence to your application, you are going to struggle to be competitive.
What you can try and do, is demonstrate those softer skills from areas of your life, other than 'work' ie from your Interests, sports, societies, volunteering etc.
