Which one of these fields do you want to work in:
Want to review your favorite game?
So you want to be a producer?
I want to be a games-tester!
So you want to be a developer? (Part 2)
I want to program!
Boop Beep Bop Boop! (Part 2)
Some great resources are gamedev.net, /r/gamedev, and anywhere else you find on the web!
I'm a game programmer and computer science ninja !
Here's my 2D RPG-Ish Platformer Programmed in Python + Pygame, with a Custom Level Editor and Rendering System!

1) Concentrate on learning your language of choice. I recommend either C or Java.
2) Take courses in Software development and Maths.
3) Grab a book on games programming such as Andre Lamothe's "Tricks of the Game programming Gurus".
4) Be prepared to spend a year or two nailing the basics of programming and writing applications.
...and may the Force be with you...always.

My advice start reading a book about programming or how to make games. Thats always a great start. When your done with it buy another and keep on learning more. And like this, you shall evolve your skills.

Advice number two, read me. If it seems like too much effort, let me be blunt and say, quit now. This is one of those fields that requires a hell of a lot of effort and self motivation.
