You need a 3D modeling package like Strata 3D (very cheap) or 3D Studio Max (very expensive). You need a good allround 2d artwork program for editing your texture maps ... like maybe Paint Shop Pro, and hey ... whats wrong with visual basic dude !

oooo. i have 3dstudio max, i could use photoshop couldnt i? i have that. Visual basic? the best i ever did with that was a break out game. u know... smash the blocks away? lol. Ok, so once i have these programs, how do i go from there? i make the characters in 3dstudiomax... textures using photoshop.... then what? how do i make it all move and work togther?

Most big-time game programming uses C or C++, but like Cybermike said... there's nothing wrong with using VB.  Do you already have a little knowledge of OpenGL or DirectX?
