Definitely game designer. With my qualifications and skills I'm probably better suited to being a quest/content creator or community coordinator/representative, but I love to create areas, characters and lore/history (both when I write prose and when I used to be a GM for my pen & paper RPG gaming group), so being the original world designer and having control over the game's ongoing storylines would be my dream job.

If I lived in a country that had a gaming industry then I would probably have tried to get into the gaming industry years ago, even if I had to start as an unpaid intern or work my way up from QA like so many do.

Well the real answer is "none" - I'm with those who like to keep their hobbies as hobbies and work as work, but ... if I had to pick something it would be environmental artist. In particular I would love to design cool little hidden nooks and crannies for explorers to come across. For me the game is at its best when the part of the world that I'm in makes me feel something, whether it be awe or comfort or sadness. I love little moments like actually feeling cozy when you find shelter from rain in the game or feeling peaceful sitting by a lake during sunset within a game. I'd love to try to recreate that for others.
