Best of luck to you!
I see this a lot even form when I was a school. Playing is very different from creating games, One is relaxation the other is work, not to be confused.
Please think about your skills, write them down, ask your family and friends, if designing games is a skill , then go for it. If not dig into what it takes to be a designer, i.e. writing code, testing, etc
There are many different phases in creating a video game, not all of them are coding related. For example video games require a lot of art for individual assets, characters, scenes, etc... If you're a creative person this could also be an interesting path. You could check out schools or online institutions that offer programs for 3D artists. As others have suggested, consider what are your skills and real interests and I'm sure you could find a path that would get you into the video game industry.
