I'm 16 and Ive been trying to read up on game programming because i really want to do this as a job. but the only problem is i don't know where to start. Ive been trying to find programs that i can download and use but i have to buy them and the only one i found that was free was blender. but my main questions are what free programs can i get? where should i even start in game programming? what kinds of classes will i need to take in college to get good experience in game programming? and how hard is it to find a job in this major?

General discussion would have been fine.

Also, this might help.

EDIT:

1) To guys telling the kid that it's on the wrong forum, he gets it.

2) To the kid: It's a great thing you've picked something to do that has a great future application. I can't point you in a direction since I don't know much coding, but I can tell you to keep at it and persevere! You'll have to do a lot of figuring things out on your own, you'll have to go through a lot of frustration, but at the end of the day you'll have a new skill. Keep working at it!

Next time just ask a mod to move it. The mods are cool. Ask Sweep. And I answered you question on the the other thread sooooo to the general discussion!
