Gaming Computer Science" OR in a broader "Computer Science "?

My son believes he wants to create video games for a living. He has a full scholarship at one University in Texas that has a Gaming Computer Science major (specifically for gaming). My son also has a full scholarship choice at a local university that only has a major in Computer Science (but not in gaming specifically).

The question is: If my son takes the major in Computer Science (not in gaming specifically) locally, can he easily obtain a job creating games after college (without the emphasis in gaming) and will a broader Computer Science major (not in gaming specifically) widen his chances of obtaining other computer jobs (outside of gaming) in other areas if he decides he wants to go a different direction after college?

Or, should my son go to the university in Texas that has the Gaming Computer Science major (specifically for gaming), or will that limit his ability to pursue jobs in other areas after college? In other words, does a Gaming Computer Science major limit him in the future? Thank you for your time!
