You know like work major video game companies I know that I will need a degree and go to college but what class should I start first? Should I do basic art first?

Well, I am in the art part of designing, so the first thing to do is the basics. Practice a lot, practice the form... different perspectives, lighting, poses. I have been taking art college courses since I was 16, and I still practice :)
I would also say go outside and take a sketch pad with you. Nature is a great source of inspiration; sometimes buildings, armor, weapons, creatures etc. all start with a variation of something the artist saw in nature. I go to the zoo & botanical gardens and bring my sketchbook with me, too!
I would also check out if there are any courses going on for Drawing 101 at your local college. Maybe not enroll in the university at first, but take one class. I did that for other things, and found I enjoy art the best.
While inspiration is good from artists you admire, I wouldn't try imitating them. With practice you will find you own voice so to speak, your style and there are companies out there that want a unique fresh take on characters, creatures, environments, etc. I wish you luck finding your style and hope you enjoy the experience! :)0
