I just want to know if C++ really is the standard language in the game industry and if I should start programming in it if I want a job making games?

This. If you are going to have a career in software development, you will probably find you'll learn a dozen or more languages to varying degrees.
You will probably wind up learning several programming languages, they are each useful for different things.

But would you then be prepared to take a pay cut?
I was actually thinking of getting a job as a java programmer in the software industry after college. Maybe work there for a few years while doing some cool game projects on the side. After I've saved up some money and more experience from game making I'll try to look for a job in the game industry.
How does that sound?
