Hi, I am interested in getting into video game programming. So far, all I've done are several text based games in c++ (Mainly a text based RPG with 10 levels). I plan on going to a college for Computer Science. I was hoping people could give me some advice on what I need to start learning to program games with graphics (2D and 3D) as well as good colleges for programming.
