After browsing the FAQs and looking at what degree I may need I stumbled along this quote.
Here's my problem, I have a "passion" for games and wanting to create them (and how they're made) but I have "feeling" that if I take a game development course it will be harder for me to get into the game industry than if I had a computer science degree. But I may enjoy the game development course more than the CS course. However, it may not benefit me as much as CS degree would

["Follow Your Passions, ignore your feelings"]
Here's my problem, I have a "passion" for games and wanting to create them (and how they're made) but I have "feeling" ["feeling" deleted, since "feelings" should be ignored]

Here's another FAQ: http://sloperama.com/advice/entry65.htm (how to ask good questions).
Since the advice is to ignore your feelings, why are you mentioning your feelings?
Also, when you say you have a passion for creating games, you weren't specific as to which job you're leaning towards. Here's another FAQ: http://sloperama.com/advice/lesson34.htm (which degree for which job).
