Not if you continue the way you are.

You seem to only want to make this game if it'd be successful, if it'd make money. That is not a way to sustain drive and you will quit 2 months in when it gets tough. LEARN about game design, no one is stopping you. How do you gain experience? You do it. You do not HAVE skills currently as you do not have experience, but that doesn't mean you can't make a high quality game. And most of all, make a game because you're passionate about the design, not making money. The cold hard truth is that most people make nothing off of their video games.


Grab a few art books, design books, modeling books, programming books and get to work. Just because you do programming doesn't mean you can't learn other skills related to game making. High quality means well rounded, if you only know one aspect then you will NOT achieve your goal. Learn all the skills you need and refine them - it's the difference of being a one trick programmer into what every employer desires.
