Well, I am completely new to programing so I just started learning Visual Basic a few days ago and now I have a good grasp of how to use it, but I haven't found any good tutorials for how to make easy or pretty basic games. Can anybody give me a good tutorial on how to make like a 2d crappy side scrolling games or pong or something? thx in advance

If your aiming to make a simple pong clone, draw it out on graph paper and figure out what you'll need. A bitmap for the paddle, the ball, the background. You gotta check if certain keys are pressed so the paddles could move up and down. You gotta make some basic collision detection so the ball can 'bounce' off the paddle. Stuff like that.

anybody have any good tutorials for these games though?

I have a good grasp of Basic, but I still have no idea of how I would come about to even start something like that.

Take it step by step.

1) Do you know how to load images with <language>?

That's the first step to take. If you don't know how to load a bitmap or anything, go learn and then come back and ask for a little bit more help.

Well, these might not be what you're looking for, but a google search turned up these(the ones that I thought might look promising)

Good advice there - always check with google first, and also - there are loads of previous threads on exactly the same topic as this, so give the forum search a try, you should find plenty of info.

For VB games, Lucky's VB gaming tutorials is an excellent resource.
