Hey, I''m a beginning C++ user. By that I mean that I understand cin> and cout< and main{} and all that. My question is: how can this possibly be used to create games??? is there some magic {game} command or something? thanx! Return 0 ...biatch

You won''t really be using cin, cout, once you get more advanced, but you probably will want to initially so that you can make some basic text games.

But to answer your question, I''ve always thought of programming like a language -- 10% of the words are used 90% of the time. That is to say, there are a lot of things you can do with programming, but 90% of the time you will be using "basic" techniques and stringing them together.

I''d suggest looking into loops and control statements, which will give you a lot more insight into how games are created.

nope no magic commands..keep learning . you'll begin to understand down the road when you start learning about memory access and pointers and loops and such.
