Just recently finished reading Head First Java, coded a few programs with basic GUI, little animation. Just wondering what people would recommend I get to sharpen my Java skills more? Design patterns? Mobile Development? Any book/video recommendations? If I were to get into game development would it be a better route to learn design patterns?

If you want to hone your Java skills, read Effective Java.

Thanks, from the reviews that I'm seeing that looks like a very good book to get into. Anyone have any recommendations on good 2D / 3D Gaming books?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
