I am not in the game industry right now. I switched around 4 years ago, after working on a failed game startup with crazy long hours.
I do not regret switching away. However, that does not mean that I hated or gave up game industry completely. There are moments where I would like to make a game, but it'd be my own game, not someone else's. So you do not have to give up your passion in games.
Switching away also allows you to see what everyone else has been doing in the enterprisey technology -- what technology, tools, and practices they use. Gee, DB, enterprise solutions, cloud technology, Big Data, Hadoop. Even though some people may find them boring, I don't. It's really up to your personality.
My lifestyle since then has changed a bit. I play less and less games, because my crowd at work are naturally more diverse. When I moved away, I realized game industry is a very exclusive community. They love playing games, they love seeing pretty graphics, and they discuss games. It's a very adorable community, and I meant that in a good way. There are also some that are on the extreme side. Hearing stories that you have to be a serious player of LoL if you work at Riot Games sound ridiculous to me now. Moving away from it, if anything, actually benefits my perspective of the industry, and I could reapproach it later, if I want to, with a fresh pair of eyes and knowledge.
