    I'll make a list:

    Computer Science/IT
    Design Technology
    Art
    English Literature
    Media Studies
    Physics (couldn't hurt)
    Sociology
    Psychology
    Philosophy

    I'd say that's probably the order you'd want them in, too.

    Oh, and a few more that would be useful:

    Video Game Designing
    Dream Crushing
    Journalism
    Fatality.

    It's a class that will help you with your dreams being crushed, after you find that Video Game Designing is a really competitive area to get into.

    I had to take it myself, once. </3
    Fatality.

    lol I was gonna say something similar xD

    Everyone thinks that hey, I love playing video games, and I love computers...I'm gonna be a video game designer.
    But you plus the other millions of kids have the same dream.

    You really need to set yourself out from the pack. Honestly, if you have to ask, you might wanna reconsider D:

    Follow your dreams! The classes Inq suggested are good. Especially Computer Science. Your college will have a course set for you for that major. The one I'm transferring to has a Game Dev. Department.
