My aspiration is to be a game programmer, and though databases are a part of video game creation of MMORPG's, flash games etc, i believe it is not relevant to game programmers and is not a very significant part of game development, but the people associated with job titles like "Oracle Database Administrator", "Database Engineer" and so on.
Do game programmers deal with databases if so is Microsoft access a great way to start or should i be using NoSQL, MySQL etc instead?

Some games will definitely use a database. SQL is basically a must know for when you graduate. Maybe for games you don't need to know it in detail (advanced queries, indexing etc) but should learn the basics at least. MySQL is probably best. MSSQL might be slightly easier for a windows set-up.
