Hello! I guess like many people, this is my first post, so I will try to keep it simple and sweet. 

 

I am wanting to make some video games. More specifically, games that both kids and adults can enjoy. I want to make games like breakout, or a maze game that you can shoot at monsters, stuff like that. I know that is very vague, but I have a problem explaining my thoughts sometimes. 

As to why I want to make games, well... I had a near death experience last year, and I have been trying to learn graphics programming since. 

 

I am learning python right now, and ordered some books to help me learn C++ and Direct X, which I know are very hard languages to understand and learn much like OpenGL, but I know as well that the reward is great. I don't want to make full scale 3D games yet, but I do want to do that down the road. I don't want to use a premade cut and paste game development kit like Unity or Game Maker, but if I have to do that to learn first, I am willing to try anything. 

 

I guess what I want to know is, what is the best method to do what I want to do? Am I doing the right thing so far? Am I going down the right path? Is there anything you could suggest to me to help me learn how to better understand programming and such? 

 

I don't know how to fully ask my question. I hope you understand what I am trying to explain. 

 

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my topic, I hope to hear from you guys soon!
