Looking To Jumpstart My Passion For Games.

Hello all, I’ve been wondering about what I wanted to do with my life for quite some time. I’ve realized how much I enjoy creating content in games that allow me to do so. Think Far Cry, Little big planet, etc. I’m fully aware how different the actual process of creating stuff like that is In an actual development engine. Here is something I’ve made recently.

My point is I’ve always thought imagine if I had actual developer tools, maybe I could make something truly my own. I’ve always had a knack for level design and making things look pretty haha I think I’m going to try and learn everything I can. My question is do you have any beginner tips? Recommended set ups? Thank you all in advance!
