How long do you think it will take me(average intelligence) to learn java, java game programming, and then be able to create a simple game? (like a pitch-batter baseball game or something)

Depends on whether you have previous programming experience. While learning the general syntax of a language may be fairly simple, learning the theory behind algorithms/data structures/object oriented design takes a while to grasp, especially if you are coming from a non mathematical/technical area. Although you could probably hack a game together with about 6 months of casual Java learning, it probably wouldn''t have a good design, fast algorithms to back it up.

It can take you 1 week. It can take you 1 month. It can
take you 1 year. It can take forever because you quit halfway.
There''s no way to know except for you to try!

You have a very long road ahead of you. Good Luck!

4 months, 13 days, 6 hours

<< (like a pitch-batter baseball game or something) >>

Another 2 months, 11 days, 9 hours

Let''s see....6 months, 24 days, 15 hours exactly

Assuming you work on it about 3 hours a day.

Steady on there. Think twice before making any bold statement like that on these boards.

Some of the WildTangent 3D stuff is done with Java (with the help of a 3D engine) including this

Skatepark Session
