Recommended Posts

Ok so I've been reading C++ in 24 hours by SAMS publishing and Im about 100 pages in...I'm a bit anxious to get into actual game development..any suggestions where I can go to start programming games (I want to start 2d tetris-like game and work my way up to making my own FPS).. thanks in advance

Honestly, I know you're anxious to get into game development, we all were when we started out... but I really, really recommend you learn a lot more about C++ first, maybe find some more online tutorials, buy a new book, and perhaps even venture into other languages like Java before you tackle game development... You'll thank yourself later, because a lot of game development is very complicated stuff thats built on basics from a wide range of programming topics, so the more you know before you get into it, the less you'll tear your hair out.

Good luck :)
