I personally started with Game Maker, and made a sort-of Pacman clone, then a Space Invaders style game, then moved on to using Unity. Of course, this may not work entirely for you, but it is just an idea for you to roll with. As for the other engines you mention; I haven't worked with either of them, but I have heard good things about them. Ultimately, it doesn't matter what engine you use, just that you find one you like, get used to it, and start making those games!
