I am 16 years old and i want to get into game programming. For this purpose i did a bit of research and found that its recommended to start with phyton or c# and i went with c# since there are too many split opinions. Now does anyone was in the same situation and could help me with choosing a online place where i can learn programming in C#? By online place i mean something like a tutorial, a book, anything (even if i had to pay) (i have a part time job o it should be ok). I tried looking for anything like this on a forum and internet but it was mostly outdated. Also should i go with what Microsoft released, can i trust their tutorial or do you have better one in mind and its verified to be better by majority of people?

Try the XNA tutorial.

 

It's good, it's relevant, you'll be able to transfer those skills to another library later on if you choose to.

ok thank you <3 now i have to go to my part time job but i will definitely look at this after i finish school tomorrow (or after i finish my part time job)

For game development I advise a "simple" game engine. GameMaker, RPGMaker, Unity, etc...

These 3 are a good starting point, especially unity since it has C# programming. 

 

If you choose C# then learn how to code before jumping into XNA. Proper coding skills may help you more than you can think.

Also if you are on windows you should download Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition. This is one of the best IDE/Tools out there and for .NET languages such as C# has no equal.

The Community Edition is basically the same as Pro edition but free :) Given your post I doubt you will hit the limitation of if you are allowed to use as from memory companies with above 5 people need to buy pro so you will be fine.
