One thing you can do now is try it out and see how you like programming, and how you like programming games.

lots of books out there on the subject (:

1. Read http://www.sloperama.com/advice/lesson15.htm and http://archives.igda.org/breakingin/path_programming.htm
2. You can program 4 or 5 games and see if you still like it when you're done.
