Hi everyone, I have very minor programming experience (basics of the basics with turing and VB, most of which I don't remember) and am going into software engineering/computer science at university later this year. I have a few questions for you guys!

1. Which would I prefer as a game developer, Software Eng or Computer science? I would like to program as well as play a role in the design of the game.

2. I assume i'm going to be learning programming in university, and I suck at drawing in real life but I want to get better in order to be decent at design. Are there any links/tutorials that could guide me? Also, would it be wise if I tried to make some 2D sprite art (which I hear is hard, so I suppose an early start would help me out)

3. Any beginner programming tutorials that I would benefit from?

4. Any helpful tips? I'm an 18 year old youngling that would love to hear what the experienced would have to say. = )

1. Major in Computer Science. You learn a lot more about computers that helps you understand how programming works in Computer Science. Software Engineering is good, but I think you get a better full understanding with Computer Science.

3. http://www.cplusplus.com/

You should be able to get a very good understanding of programming from that website. It's the best one available.

4. Pay attention in class. That's all you have to do.
