Pretty much what the title says...I just want a good free tutorial/book for C++ game programming. I don't want Just a general C++ tut but a more specific game programming one. Thanks, and greatly appreciated, Wirercx

well I have a few books ( actually a lot, but ok) and they aren't the best. And it's not like I have money or even a credit card. Becuase I am 14 years old!lol.

Really I don't believe in the generic method of C++ programming, as there are many engines, APIs, SDKs, fish, etc that you can use. Like, it's not just C++. Games. Bam. A little more branchy.
Generally, you learn C++, then practice an API like OpenGL or D3D, or an engine like Irrlicht(my personal favorite), OGRE, Crystal Space, etc.
Some good game programming books that I know of are the Beginning DirectX9/OpenGL books, Game Coding Complete, GPU Gems, Game Programming Gems, and there is also Beginning C++ Game Programming or something like that. Basically, many of the top books in the Books Section.

Good luck spazuh!

(Sorry about all the etc.'s)
