If your end goal in learning Java is to make video games, I'd suggest taking a look at Swing, Zetcode has a good tutorial that will walk you through the basics and teach you about the different class types in Java.

If you're looking for more specific advice, let us know what it is you're looking to learn and I'm sure someone will be able to help you.

You don't "open" the JDK. JDK (Java Development Kit) is just a collection of programs and library code that allow you to compile Java applications. What you need now is an editor or and IDE. Go download Eclipse and go google search for "java hello world in eclipse". This should help you get started.

I made my first Hello World! :D It got confusing at one part because at the point where Eclipse is trying to make you put in System.out.println("Hello world!") it didn't tell me to put the ending command " ; " or even where to put it, but I figured it out thanks to Youtube. I wish this program knew i was a extreme newbie at this stuff. So I was able to successfully create my first application.. now what? What's the next step in this learning process?

Even though it's confusing at first, Eclipse is one of the best IDE's I have ever used for Java.
As far as easy to follow tutorials, HERE is a great one, written in plain English.
HERE is a good video tutorial series you may also want to watch.

3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

Make tetris. Or, if that sounds like too much right now, "Guess my number".

But how do I make something like Tetris. I'm not very skilled.. All i know is how to make it say "hello world"

To Shippou: I opened the text document but it popped up in anything but english. Any advice?
