Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I do realize that as a beginner I can't exactly make a MMORPG. I was a bit tired at post of this thread, so I didn't exactly mean something as big as that. Maybe just a RPG so that I don't have to get into networking yet. Like teckpow stated a ORPG could be a possible answer. I do have 1 issue with 2D games. 2D games are purely made with textures, Most of the time it uses tiles and sprites. I'm not really a tile or sprite artist at all. I have a few friends that could make textures that suite 3D games better, thats why I figured I could get into programming 3D games and possible the modeling/animations. I have a friend who could help me out on that if needed. So, I would rather stick with 3D. Correct me if i'm wrong. Right now I want to know of a good programming language for beginners. I know C++ is a high-level programming language so it may be difficult, although im willing to take it on. I have been considering C++, Python, and Java. Also maybe C# or Lua as a scripting language. @Shippou How updated are those Python tutorials? Python 3.3 and Dev 3.4 are out right now. I would figure a lot would be changed from coding Python all the back in 2.x Also, I kind of do need a fancy computer in a sense. If I was to use a advanced pre-made engine or a engine of my own and my computer doesn't have the right specifications to run it then programming a game would be very choppy, laggy and the game itself would most likely I couldn't even play if the requirements are too high. Anyways, i'm open to any suggestions.
