First look at the available engines and the languages you need to learn to use them.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_game_eng...

Then decide what type of game coder you want to be.

For web based games learn javascript + html + css3 and/or java. Knowing Java means you can also write Android games.
For graphics intensive games learn c++, c.
On apple hardware you'll have to learn objective c.

I wouldn't use c# for games. Python is a good first language and general programming language. Check out the game engine called panda3d for python.
