Centennial VS George Brown Game Design?

I can't seem to find any information comparing these two Colleges in regards to their game design programs.
I have two choices: George Brown's "G109 Game Development Program" Or "Centennial's "6422 Game Art and Design"
Here is a link to their websites:

http://www.georgebrown.ca/G109-2012-2013/

http://www.centennialcollege.ca/Program ... ogram=6422

Note that Centennial's program is only 2 years long, and George Brown is 3 years long. So will Centennial teach less? or Cram everything into 2 years? Not sure. :?:

If anyone can tell me which one is a better option, I'd much appreciate it. :)

Don't really know but I know someone who is doing it at George Brown. It is very stressful and although you don't really do exams or buy books and stuff, you still are expected to constantly build your portfolio. The portfolio matters more that the diploma. George Brown adds a bunch of electives that don't even relate to the course, I suggest to pick the online ones. There are always lay offs in the industry and you are globally competing for positions when you're done. He went into the program because he is a really good artist and loves gaming but now he hardly even draws for fun. I would recommend against doing the program all together but if you must, do the 2 year one and save yourself some tuition. I think GB is like 7000 per year. The amount of years or diploma will not matter compared to your portfolio. Hope this helped.

lol game design programs. You're better off learning how to code and putting together some HTML5/Android/iOS games.
