I want to learn Game Programming cause i'm a fanatic of such applications. I do have a good knowlodgement of programming techiques, but little experience in the game field (know C, Visual Basic, Pascal, ASP, etc) I heard that Visual C++ and Directx is the best option for this. Does anyone have URLs, tutorials or advices for me? I'll be grateful.

Due to the complexity of writing a contempary PC game, you may like to consider learning more about Games programming via the Nintendo Gameboy.

Their is a huge variety of free and shareware tools available on the Internet for programming the Gameboy, either in C, BASIC, or Z80 assembly language.

There is a huge variety of FAQs, example code, tools and tutorials you can also download which will provide enough information for you to write a game of comercial quality.

You can either play your game on one of the many Gameboy emulators, or download it to a cartridge and play it on a real gameboy.

The hardware for downloading to a cartridge can either be purchased (about $100), or you can build your own.

If any of this appeals to you then there are some very good Gameboy programming sites on the internet, a great starting place would be:

also there is a friendly Gameboy development IRC channel on EFNET called #gbdev
