The way I got started game programming was by getting a book on C. The dummies books and Tony Zhangs book were great helpers. Once I had a good understanding of C, I got Windows Game Programming for Dummies: By Andre Lamothe. That''s the way I got started and it really helped. It is a little expensive, but it works.

Just don't try to do too much too soon. Obviously, in order to do game programming, you need to be able to program. Make this your first step. Once you have a decent grasp of that, then you can start getting into game specific programming.

You are going to need a good C/C++ book and a compiler. Try to shop around becuase some learning books have a limited edition of Visual C++ included with them. This is probably your best bet. (Any suggestion guys?)

If that is still too expensive, there are some free compilers availible, but they usually aren't as easy to use as a professional development enviornment.

I''ve read many confilicting articles on the subject of what is good for begginers to learn and I need more opinions. I''m thinking about either Visual C++, Visual Basic or Java right now.
