I would like to make video games (Indie), for people to enjoy.
I have a very very basic knowledge in C++, and very very basic knowledge in java. And when i say basic, i mean just barely past the hello world. I am almost sure Xbox 360 games are made with C++/C, simply because they are both related to Microsoft.
However, i do have 1st hand experience with Gaming and i am a hardcore shooter fan. So the types of games i would like to create are mainly shooter games. I would like to start out simple. Then move onto things like paintball, then gradually make my way to actual guns and shooting games; like MW2, or Bad Company 2.
I'm not saying im going to have the same graphics, guns, actions, triggers, and things like that, but i would like to be able to tell my friends, "Hey, that game your playing. Yeah, i made it!"
Yes, i know this is going to be a long shot, and it will take a while. But for the past 1 1/2 years, i have been trying to learn C++. The thing is a see something else and then i completely forget that im learning C++.
I have been taking lessons, believe it or not, on You Tube. The channel is YouTube - antiRTFM's Channel
I am not trying to promote him in any way. I would just like for you to see the way i am learning.
What i am looking for is for someone to tell me what i have to do, What i have to learn, what programs i will need, and for them to point me in the right direction. Thank you for reading this and i hope you have the right answer for me
