I use Visual Basic for all my games. VB6 for everything up to Issaman/Chicken Fighters 2005. These games are in VB.NET 2004 and all my games now will continue to be in .NET.

I bought one of those "learn vb5 in 21 days" books, and did every page/chapter one by one. Took me like a couple months. Like the first chapter would be on how to draw lines, so I followed the code in the book, then I experimented and would go "oh, what if I wanted to draw a box!". So eventually I had about 100 small little programs done after reading the book and a lot of experience. Then I went for it, I decided to make a game. Thats when you pretty much learn on your own or go on google. But after years of practice (keep in mind I started VB almost 8 years ago), I got to the point where I can make some real games.

Those who want to make games, this is my advice: Get off your butt and practice, learn as much as you can, then push the limits and make something you think you cant, it took me years, it will take you years also if you are commited.

I have a learn vb in 21 days too, but ive never read it... :( I also have learn c++ in 21 days which i've also never read and then i also have html in 21 days which i didn't read, but i know html like the back of my hand... i really want to give vb a shot now, i always thought good programs/games had to be written in c++. thanks.

No, I dont like C at all. Its suppose to be way better for gaming but I just never liked C or Java, the code is just too crazy for me and too different, Basic was always my favorite, especially in school. I did good in C but just never enjoyed writing C code.
