Moving to FB.

Unity is a powerful toolset and well worth checking out. However, if you're interested more in learning to program, directly, I would recommend you check out the Python programming language.

I have a similar problem.

I am trying to make my own FPS with cutscenes seen from First Person and a storyline that I have already worked out (literally, a scientist that watched too many sci-fi B movies that creates a mutant menace that the player must defeat with his allies). I even already have GTKRadiant, a map design program for the Quake engine.

The problem is, I don't know where to go next--I have virtually no experience with any game programming, and I was actually studying up to use the Unreal Development Kit, so I'm totally unprepared.
