I'm trying to find my starting point and I think it would probably help to figure out where other people started. If possible, I'd really appreciate some recommended resources or routes to take. Thanks.

 

Plus it's always nice to hear people's stories!

I started coding in qbasic when I was a kid, then started playing around with modifying existing games. I started spending a lot of time making mods for Quake, which helped me familiarize myself with C-style syntax. Then I started playing with C compilers, making little console window apps, doing some VGA stuff in mode 13h before moving onto native win32 code and utilizing OpenGL for graphics.

 

I'd recommend playing with existing code, of some kind, as a starting point.
