Agreed. Overall that is. I still think you can learn a lot of basic programming in python, and it's easy to learn with.
There's no compiler or linker options. Few environment changes needed to set up a first timer example.
But as you say, and as I pointed out myself, js is a lot more similar to c languages from a syntactical perspective.

That said, OP didn't mention what/where he planned on programming aside from games.
Also, more languages is a trait. If I in general had to pick between a guy who could program in two c languages,
and a guy who can prototype stuff faster(yes!) as well as writing C, I'll pick the latter.

I disagree however, that learning python or vb complicates switching back. People learn and speak more languages,
and a well founded tongue is better at learning anew than one spent in a single language.
