Actually, GW-BASIC is better than any of those!

In that case you should give up on game programming and look for a different prospective hobby.

the vast majority of game companies use C++. I assume that they have a pretty good idea of what they''re doing and so you should use C++ too.

Yeah, but it depends on whether you plan on doing it professionally or just as a hobby. If you just want to make a few games for fun then C++ probably isn''t the best option.

Ditch both VB and C++ and learn Intercal!!!

If you want to make games just for fun c++ still is the best option. Much more flexible and easy once its learned

Actually, just for posting that question, you deserve a dumb answer, here it is: Put the computer back in the box, bring it back to the store and tell them you''re worthy enough to have a computer.

I really have to disagree with at. The flexibilty that C++ offers would never be needed by an amateur programmer and the sheer overhead of learning C++ just to write a few games isn''t really worth it.

Why would you want to learn about all the complexities of C++ and DirectX/OpenGL just to write a few simple games unless you actually have a serious interest in programming anyway.

You would be much better off using a scripting language like Python or a games programming language like Jamagic/DarkBasic/BlizBasic.
