    Default java game programming?

    hi everyone
    i would be interested in game programming, not applet games, but real games in java, and i have a few question:

    1. is java a proper language for these things?
    2. if yes, could you tell me a book to read or even a tutorial website? I searched, but I found only tutorial for applet games...

    Java is great for 2D games
    C++ is great for 3D games

    About the book, I am not sure which one are good. I've learned the basics on youtube "thenewboston"s lessons, then I used this forum to solve some problems that I have in my games and also used some google..

    Good luck
    :D

    much like what Lionlev said good for 2d games.

    I am also looking to make a game I have already made 1 small one and I want to make a bigger one that Is actually fun(RPG). Theres a console coming out that is geared toward indie developers called the OUYA and its based on android which is java :). This is good for small time game makers because its usually easier to program in java then C++ although someone who learned C++ first or knows it really well this could to untrue. Like Lionlev said youtube thenewboston is probably the best place I know of to get started and you will have to start with learning the java lanagauge first before you can even think about jumping into the game making. Then once you have learned Java you should look into a "Game Engine" I used this one for a game that i did Golden T Studios - Golden T Game Engine (GTGE). The Game Engine will have more commands to learn but save you a INSANE amount of time even after you take a little time to learn the API.

    Have to no. like example Minecraft was made in java but you wouldn't be able to make something like Call Of Duty on java well you probably could but you would get really bad frames per second. If you are planning on making a 3D game you will almost have to have a team.

    or you could probably use something like unity3D where you will have to learn a scripting language or C# and you can make 3d games maybe even all own because they do so much for you but of course with pre done stuff there's going to less customization.
