Before getting his feet wet in the game industry, now executive producer of Bethesda Game Studios Todd Howard came close to working for Circuit City instead. 

"I actually majored in finance, while trying to skip all my classes and write games in college," he says. "But actually, to make my parents proud, I went and did the college interview thing, and got called back to a second interview at the corporate headquarters of Circuit City.

 I'm like, 'I'm gonna get this corporate finance job at Circuit City -- it's gonna be awesome.' And they denied me, so I was like, 'F*** them -- this is terrible. I'm just gonna make games.'"
