Default Can i become a games journalist?

Hello, my name is Elliott Flynn. I live in the UK and come from a fairly good home, i know this isn't a biography or a CV but i need some opinions from experienced writers such as yourselves.

I'm 17 years old and I'm attending college and hopefully changing my course to journalism tomorrow or over the next few weeks. I want to know if i have what it takes to earn a decent living while doing what i love doing best...playing video games

My grades arnt perfect.

English - D
Science - E
Maths - D

As you can see I'm a below par student but I've always thought i was smart.

What i really want to know is, how long would it take a 17 year old British below average student to become a video games journalist and would i even be ABLE to become what I've yearned for so long to be? I've been thinking about this for a while now and it really is something i can see myself doing and still loving for the next 30-40 years.

PLEASE criticize all you want, i need full opinions because i want to know if I'm just setting myself up for wasted years.

Thanks, Elliott Flynn
