    Do you know ANY programming languages at all?

    I'm not a game programmer, but there's a lot of things that go into a game. For example...

    DOOM3 has an engine, physics, lighting, AI, etc, etc.

    There's many part to a game, and many types of programming skills are needed to make a "big" one.

    If you don't know any programming language, learn one preferably c/c++. Then look for libraries for said language, then learn how to use those libraries, then learn to use something like blender or 3dmax (for find someone who does) And you have only touched the surface. Its much easier if you have a group of people working together on it.

    Its not terribily difficult but it is not easy.

    Depends on the type of game..you can make a simple little game using Adobe Macromedia Flash for online.

    Learning C programing will allow you to make Ps2 Games etc.
    C does a lot of things.

    The simplest game you can make is a website game were people choose links that lead to a predetermined page (very very boring..)
