Thank you for taking your time to stop and read my post, hopefully you'll be able to answer some questions of mine. If my questions are stupid please ignore them and just answer them honestly or point me in the right direction to learn (I'm new to programming / coding) I've always wanted to create games even since I was very young and now I understand the only way to create games is through coding/programming and I'm more than willing to learn and have plenty of time on my hands outside of work.I'll begin asking my questions.
What programs do I need to begin my path to coding, I want to learn Java for the project that I want to create but is it easy to learn and is it reliable? Is Java a good language to create a game? What are some projects I should try? Is there a "beginners guide to coding", are there any useful links/guides to help my learn?
