Which language to start with? Program?

Posted 15 July 2012 - 01:37 PM

______________

My situation:
______________

I want to get into coding (seriously) for game development. Now, what I've got so far is that C++ is the ultimate language for development, and being FrostBite2 engine uses it, I'm eager to learn it...
______________

My experience:
______________

I've Javascript before and it doesn't seem too hard. I'm able to type up a "FizzBuzz" game with it.
It taught me about variables, strings, for, and if/else statements. So I know some really basic things, but that's it.

______________

My question:
______________

So, I'm thinking of starting off with the unity game engine and learn C# with it, just to get some basic info in.
Is this a good idea? Or should I start off somewhere else? I've heard python somewhere when searching the forums is
good to start off with, also something about this "vb" website.
So, tl;dr; Should I start off the way I'm going to? ( UNITY 3D + learning C# along with it ) OR start off with one of your suggested languages?
Thanks for answering! :)

Uhm... Unity3D and C# are great! I teach it at a summer school, actually :-)

Anyway, if you decide to learn Unity3D and need help getting started, I'll happily help - just send me a pm or something (not for the rest of this month, though, I'll be busy teaching 72 high schoolers at that summer school).
