Well having worked briefly in the former and having family who have worked in the latter, I would say (without a doubt) gaming! And the reason is simple: game companies are some of the most dysfunctional, poorly run businesses in the world. During my brief tenure at one, I was amazed at the complete Business 101 ineptitude of the company I worked for and the other gaming companies we collaborated with.

On the plus side, game devs seem to have a fairly easy time landing some place new, as real-world game dev experience (i.e., actually participating in a commercial project that ships to retail) is still not too easy to come by. However, there have been more layoffs than normal over the past few years..
