Question
I want to get a career making video games but don't know exactly where to start. Do you know any good programing languages to learn for people who want to make games besides c++? do you know a good  website that will teach me how to write c++ or other languages? Also do you know any websites that doesn't just show me examples but gives me some task or some sort of assignments to type and try out so I can actually learn. instead  of reading examples. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
