Topics I've Started

New to Game Development but not Programming

17 February 2013 - 10:06 PM



Before I get started let me tell you a little bit about myself. I've been programming for years now and have a degree in Computer Science where I studied mostly Java. I currently hold a web development position where I work with .NET and C#. I am now proficient in Java, C# and many web languages.


However, I have never done any type of game programming and really want to see what I can do. I should definitely have the programming knowledge to put something together now, but I am just not really sure where to start. I have a few questions and maybe you guys can help.


My biggest concern is graphics. I have absolutely no concept of graphics and am not exactly an artistic guy. What do you do for graphics?


Of C# and Java, which would be best? (I know, I know.. the generic no language is best answer). What's positive/not-so positive about each of these languages in game development terms?


I really am a complete beginner in terms of game development, but I am looking for a response that isn't geared to the programming new guy. I don't need to know how to learn Hello, World. I just need to put it all together!
