    Hello
    To become a game programmer you need to learn either C++ or OpenGL or DirectX .
    Apart from that if you want to venture into 3D Games development then you will need to grasp vector maths.
    Rather than degree you will be asked for expertise in these technologies in gemming industry.

    Dear if you are passionate about the game development then nobody can stop you. All you need is flair for it along with the right approach and skill set.
    It is not at all required to have a game dev. course certificate though it can help you in big way in fetching a good start with a reputed company.
    You may approach to a nearby multimedia, animation and designing computer education centre for specific information.
    All the best!

    dear i will recommend you to read the article at Wikipedia under the heading game programmer.....

    as a brief you should have command on c++, Java, visual basic languages.... further more you can do a course in animation & multimedia from reputed college in your area (As i don't know which your region is?)

    There is no need to go for any course to get a job in gaming sector companies.Being a Computer Science B.Tech graduate you can directly apply for the following gaming companies.
    Yeti Sports
    Miniclip
    Nintendo
    Sega sammy holdings
    THQ
    Big Pixel Studio

    If you are interested in main game programming part then you can go for a course in animation, Graphic design , Audio effects etc...
    GOOD LUCK.

    Yes you need to do animation and graphic designing courses to design games, apart from this you also have to know about the latest platforms on which gaming applications are being developed like JAVA is one out of that.
    Also concentrate on the application and platform portability features which have a great market now a days.
    Please focus on the Cartoon Network like channels to generate new ideas for game designs and level comparibility.

    Best of Luck!
