Yes, there is a difference. C++ is a language, and Visual C++ is Microsoft''s C++ IDE (Integrated Development Environment). It''s basically an editor, a compiler, a debugger and a bunch of other little tools to make programming more efficient.

Yes, there is a difference between C++ and Visual C++. C++ is a programming language, whilst Visual C++ is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment), which has built in components that aid software development, primarily a compiler (something that translates the C++ language into a language that your computer can understand).

If you want to make games there are several languages you could use, yet I would recommend C++ if you intend to be serious about programming.
