    Are you looking to start something? Do you need some guidance?

    I've dabbled with a couple of text-based Java games. Is there something in particular you want to know?

    I just want to start getting into this. I was hoping if anyone knew any forums that were made specifically for homebrew games.

    I don't know of any personally but there are a lot of programmers here.

    What programming experience do you have?

    Heh, not much, my school only taught visual basic 6. So it was the only programming language I have actually made a game on. However, I know a little C. Just enough to make like little calculator programs and stuff, lol.

    I recommend starting a language and sticking with it. What kind of applications/games are you looking to make?

    Sorry for all the questions but I'm trying to make a recommendation and I need some more info.

    No, no, that's cool. I hope I can eventually make 3d games (shooters and stuff), but for starters, I would like to make 2d games like breakout or tetris.

    Programming languages are a lot like Linux distributions; everyone has their favorite and all of them have their particular strengths and weaknesses. If you're looking to eventually break into 3D, you might consider C and C++, since they seem to work with the OpenGL 3D library well.
