    What exactly are you looking for in a teacher? I'd suggest that you get a good Java book and go through the exercises.

    What other development experience do you have? Starting from scratch or do you have something to work off of?

    What type of technologies do you want to learn/use in your game? J2EE, applets, J2ME, ??

    I'd be more than happy to help direct you in your learning, as well as probably many others in this forum, just need some direction.

    you have to know what path or direction you should take, Java has different technologies like what the above said, J2SE, J2EE, J2ME, if you dont have any programming background, you should know first the general aspects of programming, i never had a teacher in real life, believe me, but i manage to get my Java ABC somehow properly, get a physical book or e-book like Introduction to Java, or Introduction to Some programming, along the way the path your taking in is getting clearer as you go on..

    I want to help recreate an amazing game
    - creating a game isnt that easy like drawing an image on a paper, you have to know the basic aspects of gaming animations, 2D, 3D, Geometry, Sprites etc.. you have to know Xs and Ys, its good that you think Big, but take a deep breath first, and know where to start

    Thanks for the feedback, I will actually be starting my degree in computer science with an emphasis on programming soon. I just don't have the funds quite yet. I have been looking for a beginner's guide to java on the internet and have yet to find one, so if you have any recommendations that would be great. I know learning to create a game isn't an overnight process, I was simply asking with that being the end goal, where should i start? Which Java technology would be more beneficial, or would an overall understanding of Java as a whole be better before I branch out into the different types of Java Technologies. Thanks.. !
