What language or book?
Posted on 2005-03-16
I am a total newbie to game programming but am interested in the 3D games such as "SIMMS". What language is the best to start in? C++? .Net? I realize that "SIMMS" may be using more than one language but I would like to select a language that gives me the most flexibility.
With the language selected, what developer tool should I use? MS Visual C++? MS Visual Studio .Net?
What is a great book for someone who has never done this type of programming?
ANY comments are welcome.
