I just started and have 0 knowledge... but i'd like to learn how to make a game.

I know some of you are going to hate me for this but I would very much appreciate some advice or guidance on Game development. I have absolutely zero knowledge in programming and coding. I am, however, willing to exert the effort to learn. I only need someone to help me and point me to the right direction... please.

If you want to make a game here on solo you'll have to go the web dev way. (html - css - js etc) Because graphics for other languages aren't supported here. Generally though the way to go for making a game is object oriented programming and a good understanding of math/physics. (The more realistic you want to make a game the more math/physics you'll need)

I am new to programming too, but luckily I have little brother coders, they told me to learn an easy language first (html,css,javascript) then move on to c++ or java. You can code a game using html, css, and javascript. You'll have to use the html <canvas> tag and draw to it using Javascript. Then CSS to pretty up the site.

Ruby i may not be for game develoment but it teaches you programming. In the Ruby course there is a simple game with objects that have strength ponts and such, just like a game characer.

Hello friend. Sololearn does provide C++ and C# tutorials so you can use C++ for unreal engine and C# for unity. You said you wanted to create a game, but did not say you want to build an engine, thats why I recommend these 2 engines to you. If you chose to learn C++, when you're done with the C++ course of sololearn, I recommend you watching the C++ tutorial playlist by Derek Banas, because sololearn does not fully cover the STL library that C++ offers. I wish you luck!

if your ONLY reason to learn coding is to write a game I'd suggest Java because I believe it is platform independent. You can write the game once and then play it on windows, mac, android, whatever. HOWEVER, if you want to learn programming for another reason other than gaming and WHAY to PRACTICE coding by building a game (like I'm doing) then I would suggest learning Python because it's SUPER easy compared to the other languages suggested here and can be complied with cython or jython of you want to.

JavaScript will, most likely, be found to be the easiest choice in this situation. However, you would need to know HTML and CSS.

You should probably start small like Scratch, and when you think you're confident go on higher levels like Python, then Java, then C++/C/C#.
