Can someone point me in the right direction?

09 December 2012 - 12:53 PM

Im currently trying to learn to program on my own and seem to be having a hard time doing so. I am torn between C++ and C#. I know I should go with C# as a first choice over C++, however the little bit ive read of each the C++ seems to have stuck with my a little easier. My question is, could someone please point me in the right direction with either language? What books should I get, what order should i read them, what I should learn before I start the basics of a game (simple 2D)?

Some of the books I have access too are:
Sams Teach Yourself C++ 6th Ed.
C# 2010 for Dummies
Sams Teach Yourself C# (2004)
Focus on SDL
Beginning C++ Through Game Development
Beginning C# Game Development
Oreily XNA 4.0

I just feel overwhelmed and would GREATLY appreciate any advice. Im not the best when trying to learn from a book alone, I do MUCH better when in a student/teacher environment. Unfortunately I dont seem to have that option.

Thanks in advance.
