Hello, My name's Travis.  Im fairly new to Java game development, and programming for that matter.  I want to ask anyone who is willing to help me where I should get started on making games.  I'm learning syntax right now, but with my anxious nature I want to start with using it to makes games as soon as possible.  I have an idea for a long-term 3D game, but for now I want to start off with a 2D sidescroller.  Ive tried looking up tutorials, but am having some trouble finding one to stick to.  I don't even need to have a video tutorial, just something that will, with the knowledge of syntax, get me off my feet and into Java game making.  I would appreciate any advice, tips, and resources.

Thanks for your time,

Hey Travis and welcome to JGO!

This post should provide lots of explanations for everything in the java gaming scene.

After learning syntax, I recommend you start with Java2D to make 2D games. You can find the official Oracle tutorials here.

Good luck!! Grin

Thanks for the quick reply! I'll continue with the syntax and start to get some basic programs going, and thanks for the resources!

If you're just learning the syntax, I don't mean to discourage you, but you're gonna have to be a bit patient before you leap into making graphical applications.  My best advice is to be rock-solid in object oriented concepts before you take the step into 2D games.
