It's only hard until you learn how. What you will want to do is go to college and get a computer science degree. Many universities have video game development as a specialization of their computer science program. So you may want to look for a school that has such a program.

Once you have your degree, you will need to plan on relocating to some geographic area that actually has one or more game development companies if you expect to get a job. Then once you get yourself a few years experience, you can move back and work from home (assuming you are good at what you do and have built yourself a solid reputation).

If you are into 3D games it's worth downloading a pre-made game engine such as unity or unreal engine.
If 2D games are your thing you can use blender or scratch. All of these are great for beginners and can create some powerful professional games.
It's also worth learning C#, a programming language commonly used in game design. All of this and you're well on your way to becoming a programming master!

Self studied everything since 1st year college taking a computer course, motivation is also needed, patience, creativeness, knowledge of the programming language you gonna use for the game development process, good imagination and putting your passion for your work is the key to be a successful game developer. Good luck. 🙂

The Black Hole:
Try it and find out. Learn to program, create 2d and 3d computer graphics, compose and record music and sound effects. Get back to us in 3 or 4 years and let us know how it went.
