Thanks for that link laztrezort. I'm going through the links within it and seeing what all there is to offer. I also plan on buying this e-book sometime in the near future. It's super new so unfortunately there are no reviews yet for it. The name however seems to fit exactly what I'm looking for.

Im also curious and this is in the XNA department. I heard of a XNA program called Sunburn and saw the website. Is it like a game maker in it self? And I don't mean a run of the mill one, I mean like a map editor basically. I'm just curious if it would be worth the investment since we are working on XNA.

Thanks for the offer Amaz1ng but I'm not really looking for something like this just yet. Ill definitely keep it in mind though.

I think i was misunderstood here. I understand what I want to do is a very lengthy investment, I have more time in the world right now then anything. I just want to be pointed in the right direction of what languages I should look into and any other helpful information would be awesome. I'm not looking to be some kind of huge booming business type deal. That's why in my title description it says project. This MMO I want to make is just a personal project, I'm not trying to make money here. So If starting out in text based and 2d games is the way to go that's fine by me, I just need to know what to look for.

I saw the list of books on the main page, those are fine but I'd rather have a personal recommendation.

Why? What's wrong with the experts' recommendations that are equally good for everyone? Why are their recommendations not good enough for you?

I don't mean any offense to them. I would just prefer a recommendation from someone other then what is listed.All I see is a summary of what the books are of which anyone can tell simply by reading the back. The only ones I see with more detail are the ones that have been featured. I would just like a little more background on books for beginners or anything for someone just starting out really.
