Game design is a cool hobby.

If you have experience in programming, you need to think about what type of games you want to create and which platform you wish to target.

If you're looking to create casual games for mobile platforms or web, you should look into programming for iOS, Flash/AS3 and HTML5.

If you're thinking about getting into 3D games for consoles, high-end computers or 3D games for mobile devices than unity or UDK is a good place to start.

My advice to you is to start small - if you want to design games as a hobby, casual games that you can create by yourself will be the way to go until you decide to make a career out of it - or find a team of creative people that wish to collaborate in their spare time.

It really depends on time-frame, funding, team size, experience and expectations - If you are fairly experienced, you should know the answer.

Familiarising yourself with any programming language is a good thing but choosing which one to learn would depend on the platform that you wish to target.

Windows phone is getting a lot more attention these days. Also, Sony has just launched their Playstation SDK and it's supporting C# as it's primary programming language.
