i'm new to programming and have only nearly finished beginning c++ through game programming. im currently learning about classes and have been searching the web about university courses in the uk.
ive read that you should learn programming before game programming and wasnt interested in cs at all.i dont really know anything about cs and what it teaches. could someone please tell me if it is about programming or is prgramming just a small topic in it.
im not really sure whether i should do game programming or cs and would like some help deciding. i only wanted to go to university after i saw a game programming course but now im wondering whether cs would be better. im not into computer hardware and all the other stuff inside them. i only really want to do game programming and cs does have some programming modules .
so could someone tell me whether cs is better for learning how to develop games or a specialised game programming course and if anyone is taking a cs or games programming could you please tell me a bit about it and how challenging it is.
i have just gotten MIT pdf file from this site which i will look through a bit to see if i would prefer cs or not. i have seen some book recommendations for game programming here but not cs.
im currently thinking of going to one of these uk universities.
