    I think that's a little too vague, but in general game programmers tend to be very competent, subsequently desirable for other positions.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    If you are a game programmer working for a gaming company, a real one, then you most likely have skills that are better than other average software positions.

    I say this because A) Game programming requires an extensive knowledge of the languages B) The game programming field is very competitive, and if you landed the job, then you most likely had good enough skills to land the job.
