C++ is currently used for many 3d games. It is the supposedly preffered language. Im guessing your new, like me. Go learn C++ and then move onto things like win32 api, and then opengl.

If you just wanna make 3D games, and not make 3D engines, then i suggest using something like Blitz Basic, or Dark Basic.

Those aren''t what the pros use, (except for prototyping, and concept work), but its easy.

Ok the programs mentioned above are not bad...but you won''t get the same result if you use c/c++ (which by the way it''s not a program but a programming language,is not the same). Also I won''t lie to you learning to program in c/c++ is a pain and it is hard, but the effort pays off. If you are still unsure on what to do look through this site (not just the forum) it helps. If you don''t want to go through the trouble then you could try searching on google for programs like Blitz Basic 3D (I think that''s the name...) I heard it''s pretty good and easy to get started with, it''s not free though.

If you just want to be simple, try some BASIC clone like DARKBASIC. It has no industry value but is good for learning the game programming concepts. Also, you can try a program like RPG maker or 3D Game Studio. These don''t have any use in the industry either. But if you want to do it right, learn C++ and utilize Win32, OpenGL, and DirectX.

head over to www.gametutorials.com

they have some opengl articles named "Talk to me like I''m 3 years old". they should be right for you..

You need Visual Studio and c++ skills to understand them
