    Question Playing C++ games

    Hi,
    How would you open and play a C++ game? I'm new to this programming and I'd like to make games.

    You just compile the program, creating an executable you can run, just like any c++ console application. Start reading a book and you'll understand it.

    You have almost no chance of success until you learn the basics of programming. Your question is analogous to a college freshman walking into an operating room and saying "I'm new to medicine and I'd like to perform open heart surgery."

    Just because playing games is fun and easy doesn't mean making them is.

    I'd usually double click the icon and just play it as intended. Same way I'd play a game written in any other language.
    Of course to be asking a question on this forum we'd expect you to be more interested i making a game than playing it. For that you'd have to show us what your current programming ability level is.

    Somewhere between "Hello" and "world" I would think
