    Well, there are many free open source games you could look at, the most popular being the Quake series of games, also look in some of the threads here for some games we've made.

    And I would suggest being proffecient in a programming language before you seriously start in game development, but if you just wanna learn, then there's no better time than the present, that's what I'm doing.

    If you want to make some graphical games, you should know, or learn, a graphics library such as DirectX, or OpenGL. Do a Yahoogle on the subjects, there are tonnes of tutorials for both of these.

    Good Luck

    Sorry we aren't scripters. We are coders.

    Heh...sounds like script-kiddie material here...

    Basically, yes, you need to know C++ or at least C.

    Period.
