Java is bad language for learning programming? Hum... i don't see why it would less good than C# or Python to learn programming. I'm interested to hear your arguments about that.

If you don't care about starting learning programming with low level languages to get a better understanding of how memory and system work, go with Java would totally fine and it would even be better than Python. I love Python, i used it for game development with PyGame during a while when i was getting started but i ran quickly in performance issues. Python/PyGame couple is good to start but i don't think it's a serious choice for more ambitious games. Of course Python is user friendly, you can make games super quickly once you are familiar with it and PyGame but you will end up writing C code each time you will need a bit of performance, and trust me, it's annoying.

Today i'm considering PyGame as a really slow library but other tools exist, for example, for 3D games, Panda3D seems to be really nice (i only played a bit with the example codes).
