Alright, if you think Quake 1 is something small, then you are way off. You''re better off with something more realistic for a newbie, like Pong. Also, aside from your C++ books, you should buy one on writing skills (no offense, but seriously, you don''t want to be misspelling function and variable names every five seconds). As for another language, C++ should be fine, you don''t really need to learn another language to make games (except for english possibly). If you know C++, you should buy Tricks of the Windows Gaming Programming Gurus. That should help you. But seriously do not expect to be making Quake on your first project. It will be years before you make something like that, if at all. Start small, like Pong or Tetris, and work your way up.
