    Ideas here!

    Tic Tac Toe
    Connect 4
    Battleship
    Blackjack

    What would be more challenging to make then these? (which i've already done) I need a new idea!

    This will be console only, as I'm still learning Windows Programming

    Tetris. Yes, you can do Tetris on the console.

    A sidescrolling game, like Mario.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    you could make a stationary platform game too, like Loderunner. Just make sure you make it interesting. This style is good for puzzle games.

    Once you've made a couple of these, don't spend the rest of your life doing similar games.

    Move on to writing specific components of a game ( like pathfinding, terrain generation, terrain rendering, skeletal animation,...etc )
    These components can be combined together to form a higher-level game - a better game.

    Currently I'm making a tic tac toe game, and it's all done, except one major aspect of it --- the AI! This will be my first attempt at creating an AI, so I will see how well this goes. As of right now, you can play a two player human game, but I don't want to show off the game until I'm done creating the AI.

    I just finished programming what I think is tick tac toe (over here I believe we call it noughts and crosses). I have absolutely no idea about programming graphics or a really good user interface so maybe you could help me with that. I have however programmed the AI. It's my first go at AI and I am proud to say that I believe it to be unbeatable, it never makes a mistake. If you need a hand just ask.

    I think I shall try the Tetris. I'll probably be done the basic game tonight, but I need to research a few things about the scoring system and such. If anyone knows anything about how it works please reply.
