    This question is getting asked too often. Do you mean game design as in a game designer(deciding about how the game works etc) or do you mean games programming? Often these too terms get mixed up.

    If you mean as a designer, your probably not going to be able to get a job as a designer off zero experience. Generally designers start in testing\qa and move up. On rare occassions they move from programming roles.

    So i would say if you want to design games you should join a games company as a qa and work your way up. Although if you want to go the college way, do a general CS degree and enter as a programmer. That way you get into the industry,make a bit more money, then try your hat at trying to move to be a designer. good luck.
