  1. To understand game design you should start out with something like this, or you should completely finish a game that's going to be way lower on the skill set. Like a text adventure or tic-tac-toe. Fully understand what it is you need to make a good game and then begin designing the game that you want. Not before. If you want to jump straight into it then I recommend Python. I use it all the time to make simple games when I'm bored, the syntax is easily read from a noobie standpoint. After learning Python you can get Python's lib called Pygame which will handle sounds, graphics, and keystrokes/mouse clicks. Only more to Pygame once you fully understand Python though, seriously I didn't listen and I was so fucking confused bro. You need to fully understand why you are programming what you're programming. And a last note on making a game. If you are the only one making a game then you need to learn how to design, program, and do artwork for a game. Making a game is not a half ass/easy thing that a lot of people think it is. It is filled with a lot of boring and hard hours of work, but at the end of all that pain, sweat, and tears you get a good end-result.

    Alternative minecraft

    Minecraft is a game about blocks. I'll just state that real quick. It's made to be a build blocks game, like legos. Something that caught my attention about your post was that you think by changing the shape of mineral blocks would make it a unique thing... No it wouldn't. How would it at all make it "unique"? Lol. As to the original poster, Minecraft has no disadvantages because the entire game is modable. If you don't like the texture of things you can simple create one yourself or pick from a long list of textures made by other people, don't like how something works then change it for find someone who already did, etc. Minecraft really only has small, small disadvantages.

    Why do most FPS games have 2 teams?

    Having 2 teams means better strategy and gameplay for both teams. I've played a game on Reach where there's 4 teams and it's just a mindless death pool. You really can't take positions, camp, or coordinate anything because everyone is running around with their heads cut off. Lmao.

    Just thought I would get myself into this community. SO HERE WE GO BRO! I'm starting my career in game design at Full Sail University, which is a new media college dedicated to staying up to date in the world and getting their grads out into the industry doing great things! ;D I've been creating games since I was 8, no not computer games! I remember the first game I made was with my cousins, we called it Shop. We would get all our toys together and use money from Monopoly. Then we would act like shopkeepers and sell our toys to each other, band against one another, and fight for riches untold! Geah... The first real game that I put a lot of effort in to, and I mean a lot, was Apocalyptic Legacy. AL was a pen and paper style game incorporating an apocalyptic scenario with bosses, guns, dungeons, factions, rich story, and a lot f*cking more, So much more... Jesus. It really blew my mind how creative I could actually be and I knew that if I never gave up my dream I could be doing some really amazing things for the gaming industry. After AL I wanted to do some games for the computer, so I picked myself up a C++ book and got started. It took me 2 years to learn that horrid language and I loved it. I wanted more though after making my first text adventure game so I taught myself Python. After that I messed with RPG Maker and wanted to doing scripting for it so I taught myself Ruby. ;D But I felt like I was being a douche and didn't feel like I was doing enough to make a game so I wanted to learn about graphics. Taught myself Ogre, SDL, and OpenGL. Now I'm at the point I'm at now. It's getting close to school time and I'm stoked as f*ck! So I thought the last thing, which should've been the first thing, was to gain a community. Hey guys! ;D
  8. Waiting till next month to go to college for Game Design. ;D
