Thumbs down Has anyone here ever made a video game?

Someday I would like to be an indie game developer. I always have ideas swirling around in my head but sadly I never get around to actually MAKING them into games. I did program a game for the Sega Genesis once when I was in middle school but I didn't know much C and the documentation for it was horrible at the time. Is the HTML 5 Canvas good for game development (if for the web) or should I go with Flash?

Im not expert game builder but i have same background as you do, i also studied C# and built poker game.

I think today HTML 5 Canvas is pretty good for game development but i think for the web flash is better.

but in order to be an expert you would have to try first right?


I am not an expert in game development but I did try to make one a while back.

I can recommend trying out Unity3d if you want to start making games, it's free and it's awesome. You can make games for PC, mobile phones, tablets and so on. many of the games you find on apple and android markets are made in Unity.

I haven't made any game, but I know a place where you can get some tutorials to get you started.

Code:
active.tutsplus.com/
Tutorials for almost every coding language in which you can make a game... flash, html5, java etc..

Many tutorials are free, for some you have to pay...

I've made a few flash games. I'm not sure if you would count that as an actual video game.
