    Win32 API is okay for pong, Tic Tac To, chess, checkers, or anything that's not super processor-intensive. If you are going to do anything like an RPG, or anything else, then go to DirectX, or else you are going to go crazy because it's the slowest game on earth.

    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!
