What are your favorite books, sites, and tutorials for game programming?
Right now I'm working on making a pong clone, and then a breakout clone.

I used to browse the inertia.curvedspace.com that's where I learnt the basic of making a pong game. Then I browse www.ultimategameprogramming.com, but that site's down. Then I goto nehe.gamedev.net, where I learn openGl, then I work my own way up now

What language and API are you using for developing?


I'm wanting to use C++ and OpenGL
I'm looking for good books, links, and tutorials to help me develop a pong clone using these.

Red Book for Opengl and C++ Primer Plus are the best references. Someone else can give you a good beginner's recommendation.
