I, like many others, would recommend you to learn C++ if you are serious about game programming. Accelerated C++ is an excellent primer on the language.

yeah, but guys you are failing to remember that C# is a lot like java in a lot of respects, for someone who doesn''t know how to do real programming it might be a good lead in. not as many people use C# and it has some performance issues but it would be a good lead in.

just keep that in mine jump

Funny to see how misinformed people can be around here :-).

Take a look at C#, it is much more capable than most close minded C++ developers would leave you to believe.

I personally recommend taking a look at C#. The performance loss is not noticeable and it cuts down development time by a significant amount.

C++, i went from 0 to Dx9 in c++ in about 6 months, and im only 15, go with c++ because of performance and because as far as i can tell, its much much much more widely used (for how long i have no idea), getting help should be easier, and its not very hard to begin with, yup theres my two cents...

Yes I realize im a n00b...
