Ok I'll be the helpful guy this time, next time try a search:

OK , althought that link is nice it does not provide information on actually programming 3d games. (Obviously, the math is very useful and will be needed, but much that is needed is explained in simpler terms at somewhere such as nehe's site)

snoofy: Assuming you know how to program , I highly suggest you head on over to nehe.gamedev.net and learn OpenGL, because of it's simplicity for the beginner. Also, read the "For Beginner" section on every page of gamedev.net

Geewiz sorry, I missed the "Games" part, thought he just meant 3D. Though what is the difference? His question was not specific, so I gave a general answer. And how does your post answer the question any better? I know people use OpenGL to program games but he will need the math too. Get off the high horse.

Game Programming->Beginners

If you're new to programming in general start here.

If you get stuck at this point then try making a post to the For Beginners forum

Once you have learned a language (you need to learn basic programming skills before you can jump into making games or start learning a 3D API), head over to NeHe (OpenGL) or NeXe (DirectX) to get some good tutorials that cover both beginner and advanced concepts.

For more information you can:

Visit our library of articles and resources
Read the reviews and then buy books on game programming
Search and post to one of the specialist forums
And if you don't find what your looking for you can use the best guide to everything, Google

BTW, Mr Bakbugawk and masterg, there's no reason to start a pissing contest in someone elses thead. "Get off the high horse" - From here it looks like both of you are somehow balanced on that thing, better get off before it breaks.

Michalson: Since snoofy doesnt seem to be apparent here, I will reply with a short message: I really dont think my message was really offensive. If it came across that way, well sorry.
