So, you are 14.

Don't think of making MMORPG at this age, because it is incredibly hard and expensive. And you know nothing about computer science.
The best thing you could do right now, along with learning programming languages, is to comprehend basics of CS.
What I suggest is to find out what TopCoder, spoj.pl, acm.uva.es are. You should start taking part in such competitions.
Read some books, for example:
Skiena, "Programming challenges" <- this on is *really* recommended for a beginner,
Cormen, Leiserson, Rivest, "Introduction to algorithms" <- can be hard a bit, but I know people at your age who can read it.

Why programming competitions? They will learn you basics of algorithms and data structures, expand your language knowledge and make a good start for more advanced things. And they are fun, too. If you are good, you can win some awards and bring glory to your country (there are great international challenges).
