Best way to learn to program games in java

Posted 21 February 2011 - 06:24 PM

Hello, I'm a newbie programmer in highschool who just finished a course on java (with a 94 :D) and I'm looking for the best tutorials and challenges for learning all the kinds of knowledge you will need to program games. I don't know much syntax(classes and arrays are basically the extent of my knowledge atm) but I'm looking for a good way to get a comprehensive understanding of the syntax. I'm working on project euler problems, ( http://projecteuler.net/ ) but it's mostly analyzing numbers and less learning new syntax and commands... I'm also looking for a guide that will give me a complete understanding of what every part of each line does, and why it's required, which all the guides I've looked at so far haven't really excelled at... So my question for you is what is a good way to get the knowledge required to create games from scratch in java?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0
