Getting a degree is vary helpful in the sense that you will learn the fundamentals in your chosen field but remember that what u want to do contains a tone of skills. I was just like you 6 years ago and the best advice I was given in college (Westwood, Game art and Design) was pick a trade IN 3D and master it. For example become the best 3D Modaler / Texture artist or Animation / rigger or lighting / FX. See the pattern? I ignored this advice and it hurt me in the long run but on the other hand I became a great generalist which is why I am now a Art Director. Master of none generalist of many :P
