Hi! I began learning game development and like anyone beginner I have typical question. What I should choose for first game: engine or framework? If I choose engine, I'll fast began game programming and faster end my first game. If I choose framework, I'll know hoe it work from scratch, but I am not sure that I finish my game at all. Please help me to choose.

I think this article does a great job of describing which games you should make first and why:

If you don't know the first thing about programming, then starting out with Pong is still too ambitious. Learn the fundamentals until you can at least write a guess-the-number game, Hangman, and tic-tac-toe.

Old but gold:

Step by step, covering even the most basic programming up to some basic games (this includes a console tic tac toe) and graphics.

 

Maybe this is one of those links that should be added to the FAQ, as I have posted it a lot of times over the years tongue.png
