Hi there, I am relatively new to games programming for the PC, so I'm pretty much wondering on where to make a proper start for programming games on windows. My experience with games programming so far has been in NDS homebrew in C, which I am pretty competent at coding in. However, I can also program in VB.NET, so I'm wondering whether this would be a good place to start for windows game programming (XNA?) Sorry for the newbish questions but these things are hard at the start ... well, for me, at least =p Thanks, audacious

That sounds like a good idea. XNA is a simple way to get into Windows game programming, and XBox 360 if your into that kind of thing.

Have a look at some of these resources if you need a hand:

And also, have a look at the GameDev Wiki about beginning game programming - it's a great guide!

Some more general advise for programming games as a hobby that I wish I would have listened to years ago; Don't think too big, and complete what you start.
