    If you want to be in the gaming industry, then I think you should've chose Computer Science. Good luck!

    Graphics or any type of art would be a good GCSE if you want to become a Game designer (Just to clarify, "Game Designer is more an umbrella term. There are a lot of different roles in that type of job which you can aim to follow if you want to)

    Computer Science would be a good GCSE to pick (Even though you haven't) as SBizzy mentioned, however not essential. If you've only just completed your GCSE's or just starting them (or half way through?), you still have all of your 2 years of A levels afterwards, then a Bachelor degree after that, so a lot of time for you to hone your skills in both GCSE and in your free time.

    Just follow your interests for now, and then do an A level course that works that. I'm in a Game development (University) course and at my uni I know a good amount who don't have a large experience if any in coding but have another skill linked to the course (Art etc), so knowing it all at the beginning isn't needed.


    As for writing, focus in your English subjects and if you decide to follow the writing (Story writing for Games or other?), follow your education to follow that

    Sorry for the long winded answer!
    Good luck with your education
