    I am Looking for some suggestions.

    Hello everyone,

    I am currently in my 2nd year in computer programing.

    I would like to make a game by myself; however, I dont really know where to start.

    I only have some basic knowledge about C and C++. I am willing to learn more new stuff.

    Any suggestions for where should I start? What I should learn in order to make a game?

    Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    It really depends on what you have in mind for what type of game you would like to make. There are many different ways to go with this, whether or not you are talking full GUI with DirectX or OpenGL, or maybe something more like a console oriented game. (text based or console graphics). Assuming you have some basic knowledge, you may find some interest in:
    Additionally, if you are looking to fool around with some different languages, C# with the XNA framework is always fun to begin playing around with 3D graphics. It really is going to come down to what you know currently and what you are looking to do. Nothing is preventing you from making a simple text based game, anyone can code those after they get through the first couple chapters of any programming book.

    Warning: Some or all of my posted code may be non-standard and as such should not be used and in no case looked at.
