  1. Well unless you are planning to do print, advertising, electronic media, or web developing in the graphic design field. Game design is a totally different field. Unless you are taking Graphic Design for your first 2 years and then move up to game design as your BS degree. However a game designer consists of developing game tables, story boards, screen writing or “creating” a story. It can be quit challenging. You have to have a strong knowledge on 3D design and mathematics.
