What language should I learn?


Hello, fellow person! I want to make games for the web, and mobile devices. What programming language do you think I should learn? I'm a programming newbie, so I have no experience in any languages.


I would highly reccomend learning HTML+CSS+Javascript. After you finished that this is a very helpfull place to go to.

Hope this helped!


I would personally take the non-web route first, hitting Python, then C, then C++.


@dirtblock, javascript (as already pointed out) is the route to go for web games. After that, mobile games is difficult to tell, for ios it would be swift(2), for android java, or you could use engine like unreal engine 4, which i believe support both ios and andoroid, and in that case i would learn c++ (since that is what UE4 uses)
