Hello guys, if a creative and dedicated guy wants to make games such as Mario or angry birds for iOS and android, with no privious language skills or even basic experience., where should he start? What language is a good place to start?

Start anywhere. Start now. Start with Game Maker, if you want to get familiar with basic programming. Start with Python, Java, or C#, if you want to go for the long haul.

Start with doing some investigation as to how these games where created.

 

For Angry Birds it was AFAIK Unity. This is a very Indie- and Beginner-friendly Game Engine.

 

Be aware that you can either develop a game with the help of an existing engine, which will give you a headstart and relieve your from coding some of the low level stuff, or you could write everthing from scratch, which will give you more control and the ability to practice your programming skills more.

 

 

Most of all, just do it. Find an Engine or Language, get an idea for a first project, and start creating.
