Hi, im about to start a web and game design course at college and am very interested in making games. The only thing is i dont have a clue where to start, i dont know much about making games and was just wondering what kind of software/development tools and code/language i should use. It all seems really daunting at the moment but my biggest passion in life is games so why not give it a go.
Any help would be appreciated, i love skyrim, MW3 ect.
Thanks.

id say download unity 3d and folow a few tutorials(very easy when someone is there telling you what to do), they have some on their site and theres always YT.

you might write a few simple scripts, learn how to light, how general tools work that are used in alot of engines, brushes, skyboxes, how to create a first person view, 3rd person also. creating and parenting objects, setting values etc etc...

should shine a little light on how designing a game goes about. from there the college should take care of the rest.
