Listing of tutorials for making online games.
I'll be finding some tutorials in this forum, and linking to them.
This is a quick guide to making a MMORPG, targeted at indie developers, with access to less funds than a big publisher:
DevMaster.net - A Beginner's Guide to Creating a MMORPG
shugo posted a seven-step course to beginning to learn how to program PHP games:

Here also is a blog post by shugo about beginner browser-based game programming:
How to make browser-based games the cheap way
the blog and course will help you to create a browser based game, the devmaster is an excellent resource in that it also helps you with other languages
Excellent resources! Using the tutorials above, how long would it take for a person to learn how to program a browser game?
cool this game is fun who has to be a smart person
Game Maker is a free tool that is meant to be easy to learn and use (at least, it was for me to learn), for use to make mostly 2D offline games. Fully 3D (as in the world can be turned around, and you can see multiple sides of characters etc.) and multiplayer games are possible with GM, but you'll need to buy the pro version for these.
technically speaking that's called scripting, programming is different
@ webber it depends on how big game you want it to be and how good you are at logic
I know, I tried to word it so that I wouldn't call them programming directly.
I just made a new blog explaining a way to get a more realistic combat system for your game.
I made a new blog where I explain how you can use descriptive statistics to catch cheaters more easily.
And could you give tutorials how to make tutorials and describes of online games?
