Well one of the main reasons people leave is the time and effort the "job" requires. Also, game programming demands a high level of skill set and marriage of computing, math and physics. Added to that is the art aspect of it. If you spend time in the industry you should be more than able, with little training to access other parts of the technology field.

Reasons why you should stay, is precisely the fact that you get to have the science and art coming perfectly together!

"Would my degree be applicable outside the industry" is a "breaking into the games industry" question, so I'm moving this to that forum.

Don't worry about the applicability of a degree you're passionate about taking. Just take it. Your life will sort itself out just fine.
