Aspire to create Facebook games using Java

Hello,

I'm currently studying for SCJP 6 and have been always been interested in computer graphics and teaching.

When I was young I disliked math and a tutor helped me play a computer game (on the original Apple) which involved escaping a haunted house by adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing.

I'd be very interested in creating games and adding them to Facebook. If young people spend so much time in Facebook playing games, perhaps they can play some games that teach them solid skills, and most importantly, teach them to love learning.

Question: Once I clear SCJP 6 (hopefully soon), which is the best certification to pursue to hone-in on such interests?

This is what I was looking for right now. https://coderanch.com/t/496172/Game-Development/java/Game-development-books-recommendations

Are there any Java certifications that most suite creating games - at first I thought it was Web Development, but then I saw a certification for Web Services, and I'm not even sure of the difference
