    Game lover don't think about code behind the game, which plays an essential role to play a game successfully. C and C++ this is a programming language which are used to build a game, there are few more programming language which are used to build a game.

    Languages* Yeah, a game can be made in either of them.

    C++ is better than C... C is outdated and would make things even more complicated. That being said both are a pain to learn so you can't just sit down one evening and expect to learn them it's difficult to program with those languages when starting. Choose something like Python to start it makes things much easier.

    Yeah, I've started off with C# but it was quite hard to learn it, so I switched to Python and it's quite good so far... I understand the syntax, but I don't know where to go from there...

    The general rule of thumb is once you understand the syntax you are golden. Because, if you can learn the Syntax there is very little need to memorize all the code learning the basics and intermediate code by memorization is good but don't memorize everything.

    The other important thing is once you learn the Syntax it can be applied to other languages easily.

    Thank you for responding so quickly, I'm currently in progress of reading the book: "Learning Python" since I've heard it's quite helpful for begginers. Any suggestions on another book or resource you think might be useful?

    Indeed, Python is a good language to start:).

    How about learning to actually program?

    I'm learning it just to make my understanding of programming easier, don't want to jump into hardcore languages yet lol.

    Programming requires you to learn the syntax.. Here is a simple java program.

    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class MilesPerGallon {
    public static void main (String[] args ){
    // String Name
    int milesdriven;
    int gas;
    // Scanner To Read Input
    Scanner keyboard = new Scanner (System.in);
    // Get the amount of Miles Driven
    System.out.println("How many miles did you drive?");
    milesdriven = keyboard.nextInt();
    // Get the amount of Gallons of gas used
    System.out.println("How many gallons of gas did you use?");
    gas = keyboard.nextInt();
    // Calculate Miles Per Gallon
    System.out.println(milesdriven/gas);
    }
    }​

    This program does not have any fancy user interface, but it took a couple of minutes to write. All it does is calculate the MPG of a vehicle.

    One can't write a program without knowing that the "int gas" holds the input for the amount of gas used. You also wouldn't know that int only holds whole numbers thus you would need to use double to use decimals.

    Syntax is the most important thing in programming. Once you can learn how to use the important rules adding a program is just as easy as finding a problem and solving it.
