Hi, I'm going to start a small project about browser based games. I'm trying to keep the bar low here. All I want to do is creat Login, inventory, objects to fill that inventory, and fake currency. Anything above it is gravy. I just would like it to be a simple browser based game like early days, no special effects or software, just page by page navigation.
Being new to it, what should I use? So far I'm seeing a lot of PHP but what would you suggest for these few things to work? Some people suggest Perl and Python and etc.

It depends. It's very easy to get dynamic web pages working quickly with PHP, so that's what I recommend if you don't know any of these languages. If you are familiar with Perl or Python already, it's probably better to read a quick tutorial on how to write CGI scripts in your favorite language, and then you'll be more productive than you would be in PHP.
