Do what you want to do, **** the system, **** living a life you don't want to live, **** your dad.. Wait no , don't do that.. But if he doesn't understand your passion or dreams then move out. If you put enough effort into anything then it's possible (within reason)

You're an adult so seize the opportunity to do what you want

This is difficult. I really, really think you should do something you love, and if you love gaming, then hell yeah you should go for it. If it's something you love, then you will love it, and surely a job you love (even if it might not pay well at first) is better than a job you hate, which might pay more? And either way, you never know whether you'll succeed with gaming or carry on with business. You know what separates people who succeed and people who don't? The people who succeed are the people who have taken risks. Sometimes they pay off, sometimes they don't. But how will you know if you don't take that chance? Even if you fail, you do have business as a back up.
My only concern is the conflict it's causing with your dad. It sucks, actually. At the end of the day, it's your life and you should do what you want with it, but I'm pretty sure falling out with your dad isn't what you want. You could try explaining to him that this is what you really want to do, that you really think you could be successful that way, putting across how you really feel about it to him. If he is still upset over it though, then you either have to do what you want to do, or take the business route. It's tricky.
Another thing you could do is continue with business but build gaming up as a more serious hobby, so having a part time job working with a gaming company and taking it further when you have more experience working in that field and feel more secure. One thing I will tell you though is that if you choose to take gaming now, you have to dedicate yourself to it. Is it something you think is definitely worth working for? If so, then I'd go for it.
I personally think you should go for the gaming - you spend the majority of your life working, and it should be something you feel passionate about. There are a lot of things to consider however and this is a very big decision, and you should think it over carefully. But remember, it's never too late to change your mind.
Good luck and let me know what you think
