..can be simultaneously one of the best and worst things to do with your life.
I've been a video game programmer for over thirteen years and it has both enriched my life greatly (because it can be fun, creative, lucrative, and is highly compatible with smoking pot) but also been detrimental because of the extremely long hours - on average about 50-60 hours a week, during crunch mode (i.e. before the release of a title) it is common to do nothing but work and occasionally sleep for 8-10 weeks on end.

It's also appallingly bad for your sex life - very few women work in the industry and you've often got little time to meet them outside work. Still, if you're a chick, and you want to work in a sea of cock, this is the job for you..
