    Default Game Devlopment Plan Help

    So I am new to Java and can make a few simple programs which like can say who you wanna invite to a party and specify the time and it will tell you when those people will show up by random and who will not. I just wanna know if I should continue programming or if I should start games. I really wanna be a game programmer when I grow up, like Notch, but with a lot more knowledge. If you could please give me some tutorials I would be glad. I have the patience to read a couple of pages, but mainly I am looking for videos. Also I am pretty young to be learning this stuff (High School Freshman) so if you could also give me some test questions. I am soon going to be taking some Java classes at my community college though. All replies are thanked in advanced. Have a nice day.

    as i read into your concern, i can see that you are overwhelmed with your goals, well its good!, but dont forget that everything starts from dust before it becomes "starting from scratch", your very young with big goals

    I just wanna know if I should continue programming or if I should start games.
    you should!, you already there!
    and you dont need to choose between the 2, because creating games in IT community is also "programming",

    I really wanna be a game programmer when I grow up
    good news! you are on the right track!, start from very simple concept, like creating Tic-Tac-Toe(though i never did this one yet), practicing your problem solving skils, creating more program and programs, dont just focus on 1 field in programming like game programmer, business application, you will deal with all of these as soon as you step ahead from the basics, YOUR ARE VERY YOUNG Being a freshman, the road for you is very very long.

    my advice is just keep on going, dont be confused, im telling you YOU ARE ON RIGHT THE TRACK!, start from fundamentals. i can provide some links, but
    this is the general part where you should start, for java beginners

    Trail: Getting Started (The Java™ Tutorials)

    in my experience, there is no EXACT sequence in learning programming, but ofcourse, the starting part is the basics, after these, you can search for more using google, cant express my thoughts too much, English is not my native language. thats all i can say
