I picked up a book the other day in an attempt to learn C++. My goal is to become a game developer, and I thought learning C++ on my own early on would be a good idea. It's difficult to understand on my own, and programs I attempt to write encounter errors that I cannot solve. I was wondering if there was a language that was easier to learn than C++ without having to know C++.
C++ is difficult, but an extensive language. Learning it will take time and patience. However it is extremely useful for making games or writing applications. If you wish to learn a language for game programming other then C++, try LUA. Java is not a primary language for games, but you could give it a try.
Thanks for the replies, I appreciate them. I think I try an easier language first, then go back to C++ with the experience under my belt. I think I'll look into to LUA, since it was recommended by Blue Shell. I also do some research into python, though I had to google what OOP meant. Thank you both for your quick and helpful replies.
