QuestionWhere to invest time? Pin

Hi!

I'm a 16 yr programmer, and I am looking for some advice for my future.

I basically want to know: what industry is going to prosper in the future and will be worth investing my time in right now. Meaning, what things should I start learning know and start gaining experience in, so I can be more prepared for a job, as well as know that my time isn't going in vain.

I'm really passionate about making games (Worked with Unity3D and XNA with C#) and (My #1 Choice)I am extremely passionate about C/Linux/Embedded Programming. And I'm not so fond of web programming. These are my preferences, but you guys know much more than me, so please advice.

Also, please tell me the technologies/languages I should start learning that will prosper with the industry you recommend. I am really looking forward to your advice.

Thanks!

PS: If you are interested in knowing what I've worked with before, here it goes: C#, VB, Unity3D, XNA, ASP.NET, HTML, JAVA, JavaScript, Android, WP7, Desktop, Graphic Design, and what not. I've tried a lot of things but have moved on to try out new things. For instance, I gave up Unity3D because I didn't know how to make 3D models. I gave XNA because it was too complex to just load a 3D texture, never mind interacting with it. I never worked with Embedded programming because the starter kit's were too expensive. Frown | :(
