Yes. Probably best to get to pick a language-of-choice and get to know it well first. If you're interested in Windows/Xbox games, then it looks like C# would probably be your best option. Although, you certainly can do games in VB.Net as well.

They're completely different. VB 6.0 had limited OO capabilities and a lot of miscellaneous problems stemming from its history as a BASIC derivative. VB.NET has similar syntax to VB6, but is in all other respects a .NET language. There are very few reasons to use VB6 these days.

rpstaekwondo,
you must live a sheltered life? maybe you should get out more? There are sites on the net dedicated to just about any (ok..many) type(s) of implementations of games.

e.g.http://www.vbgames.com

Maybe you really want some opinions on what would be best to use as opposed to whats possible (this is me being rudely presumptuous)?

You'll find most languages are capable of making games, its just some arent as common as others, but I've seen plenty of games made with VB, in particular a few basic morpgs.


nice, i think i will start learning that, it does seem really easy compared to c++, no semicolens after each line lol
