Hello everyone I'm new here, I hope this was the best place to post this topic. Anyway, I'm a third-year in college and would like to get into the video game industry someday so I wanted to start getting my feet wet now by learning how to design and animate 3D models now and make little indie games. So I wanted to ask people here who have experience with video game development, what are the best beginner books and software to buy and start with if I wanted to learn on my own how to create 3D models and create little games of my own to help me get into the video game industry? I know very little about modeling and programing so I wanted to start with the basics. Does anyone have any suggestions from personal experience? Thank you everyone for your suggestions. :)

Personally I'm extreemely impressed by Blender. It's free and it has more functionality than a commercial product today like 3D-studio (you can easily just add free plugins for things you'd normaly have to pay large sums of money to get if you used a commercial product.). Most importantly it's fast and it has a lot of community support. You can also find free official videotutorials on their homepage.

I'd recommend you get the program here:

and the best videotutorials to start with here:

I agree I would start with blender personally. I used it years ago only to find it was difficult to understand, but it seems that they have made an overall to the UI and it's much easier to understand. :P AND there are more tutorials.
