    Question Where should I start programming Java Games?

    Where can I start programming Java games. I can't find any decent tutorials and what about libraries. What are the best libraries out there? I have played around with Slick2D w/LWJGL and I like them. Then i tried to do it again and never got it working. I've also heard of libGDX and that sort of interested me. I really would like help from the java community so if you could reply it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    If you're just starting out, I would recommend checking out Processing. Processing is built on top of Java, but it makes doing visual things much easier.

    The Static Void Games link in my signature has a bunch of tutorials I wrote that take you from basic Processing through game development in Java.

    Once you have an understanding of the basics, it'll make switching to a framework like libGDX much easier.
