    What to start with :?

    I am thinking of getting into the whole C Game Programing,nothing serious i just want to be able to make small games as a hobby from time to time.I still have not started learning one of the C languages (C,C++,C#) because i do not know which one to choose.From what i have heard C# is the easiest so i am leaning a little towards it but is it too limiting will i be able to create quality games will it ? Or will it limit me to simple 2d platformers? If you guys were in my situation which code would you start with?

    People looking into game programming should really pick an engine instead and learn the language it's written in.

    The first thing I do, is write down what I want to happen, then I break it down into smaller pieces. Then when you get to coding, it will be easier for you. Keep in mind, I am not math savvy and you will be dealing with a lot of math no matter what. Sometimes I wish their was an engine, that did what I want it to do, and not make a big deal about itself. The only reason you want to work from scratch, is to utilize as little processing power. That is why back in 1991, you had full functioning high end 2d graphics, because the programmer was working with a low-level programming most of the time.
