Easier said then done...

You will need: thourough knowledge of the C++ Object oriented language...
Good 3D modelling techniques
and a LOT of determination...it is virtually impossible to make a 2006/7 worth game by yourself...it would take you till 2020...:whistling:

That is why gaming companies hire different people for different things: modelling, game engine...etc..


hope that helped

p.s. google is the answer to everthing

Well... Be prepared for a lifetime of hardship and tough work... Anyways, to provide what you requested...

This is a Google result page, remember that Google is always your friend...
C++ For Beginners

Otherwise, I advise you find a good book to invest in, as you will want to ensure this is 'the career for you'. Sites such as Amazon have selections of books that may be useful, and for some Microsoft programming applications you may wish to search out 'Microsoft Press'.

Hope this has been of at least some help,
Chris

For programming, I recommend using Notepad++.
It has a lot of color codes for code languages (almost all of them, I think).
Split screen, so you can work on the bottom of a script and at the top at the same time. (Doesn't sound usefull now, but it definitly is.)

Good luck young programmer.

In reference to apps in which to build code, ever tried Textpad? I'm so in love with textpad for html, php, and stuff of that nature.
