what do you find the best if I want in the future go for 3d games pc and console?? C++ or java?


It doesn't matter so much. You will probably need years of experience before you can make the games you want to make. And in that time you can and should learn a few different languages. I'd say start with Python, because it is way easier to get started with. If you like programming at all you can learn a new language later, when you know more.

I haven't read it, but there is this book: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/ which seems nice.

The advantages of Python is that it is easy to learn, and that there is an interactive interpreter for it. That means that you can type in experssions and statements into the interpreter and have it execute them immediately and show you the result, so you can try things out and get feedback instantly. It is also a bit more high-level than C and Java, etc. so you can get more done in less time and with less code.
