    Computer science is more theoretical it's stuff like algorithms and data structures their is lots of discrete maths like set theory and graph theory. Computer engineering is more how does the software interact with the hardware like a bit programming and hardware . If you want to do games programming that's pretty different to what Google , Facebook ect do. I'd say computer science is best and look into specific game development courses

    I'd say computer science, this will teach you the very basics in extensive details.

    I think it would be much easier to move to graphic design and stuff after your degree than the reverse.

    If you really are just interested in making video games and stuff though, there is really good courses with modules fitted to this, I got a counter-offer after a comp science rejection from University of York which I really did consider (https://www.york.ac.uk/media/tftv/do...20Brochure.pdf), it seemed like a really fun course but my heart was set on a math heavy comp science degree.
