#4913096 is learning c++ as first and only language a bad way to go?

I would agree that C++ is a more treacherous language than modern languages like C#, but don't let that discourage you from trying. You can do a lot of things in C++ that C# would try to limit, which is why it's dangerous.

Also, once you have an understanding of C++, you can easily switch to Java or C#. You'll have to learn some new concepts maybe, but you'll have a pretty good idea how everything works on the low level. I started with C, then went on to C++, and then Java. My first game was in C++, and I can say that going from C++ to C# (which I've never touched before this semester) was a breeze.
