    To start computer science courses.
    Ben Franklin said it best. \"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.\"

    To start computer science courses.
    What sort of a silly answer is that ? I need specific answers, please.

    It's not a silly answer. It's the correct answer. You are asking a fairly broad question and offering very little information.

    Try this:
    ----------

    google >> game programming

    google >> video game programming

    Mathgirl, i consider a post useful when it contributes to the thread.
    Not when it tells me to do some computer courses, and you think i was dreaming of waking up to find myself become a coder ? I wanted content specific information.

    and you think i was dreaming of waking up to find myself become a coder ?
    I don't know where you got that and I don't know what you are dreaming. What I think/know is that you haven't seemed to even check google for information and that you want others to do the work for you.

    I wanted content specific information.
    Then you should have asked a specific question.

    Ignore assembly language, there is no significant assembly in modern games (and if you really need it you can learn it when the need arises)

    Instead learn maths - you'll need at least a good working knowledge of Trig, statics, dynamics (rotational dynamics a bonus), matrices and possibly a little calculus.

    Learn to be a good programmer but don't worry about what language you use - most games are written in C++ but that's not really very important - being a good programmer in any language will just help.
