Game programming will include math. Game development, however, covers both programming and art/design/sound/production. You could get into games via one of the other sections and not meet much math.

yes, though obviously it depends what you want to end up doing. also i think programmers have an easier time getting a job than designers.

PC Gamer once had an article about how to get into the game industry, and it stated that there isn't an actual job titled 'game designer' or any job that just sits around all day and thinks up game designs(slight exaggeration, but you get my point) Can anyone confirm this?

I think that when people say 'game designer' they really mean a combination of things, including programming, sound, and art.
