    No, C++ is totaly useless. It can only do console games and 3d graphics .

    Mmm, WinApi tutorial:

    If its to advanced;

    those are nice. Never bothered to learn the windows console API, having learned C and C++ on DOS machines.

    Im going to disagree here. I have seen the code for Mario bothers and that was coded in C.
    I have created a space adventre using Win32API using grahpics and sounds all coded in C++.

    It is also somthing to point out that almost every game in a store is coded in C++.
    IT IS THE INDUSTRY STANDARD.

    I used to use C, but now I have switched to C++ and life is much simpler

    ZOMGWTFBBQHAXXX?!!! swgh that can't be true, C++ for GAMES?!! Only like hackers do that coz it's not possible mate! Only language that's any good for making games is BASIC and even then your better off just using RPGMaker2000

    The point has been soundly made.
