    game programming

    what is the best programming language to learn for creating 3D games? I'm looking for a relatively easy, but also very versatile language. any suggestions? perhaps some good books or websites i could check out?

    thanks

    sometimes i wonder if i'm some kind of supreme being and the world exists only because i want it to

    C or C++. That way you can use the DirectX API and OpengGL. I'd suggest going with C, because it's easier to learn.

    You know, game programming is very tough. You need to be a master programmer to be able to create games. You will also need to be great at algebra. I studied computer science for a couple of years some years back and I'm lightyears from being able to create a game.

    This is for 3d games, creating 2d games isn't that hard though...

    But if you don't know C you have a pretty long way to go.

    Sorry if this sounds discouraging. But, if you want to be gameprogrammer go for it!

    But it will take a lot of work...

    A good online resource is http://www.gamedev.net

    I agree with what the others said.
    Just read a little through the threads in the forum there ...
    might be discouraging!?
