Start on Video Game Development

I want to learn how to make video games. I already know how to make the sprites and know how to do the designing part, but I want to know about the programing part so here is my question. What programing language(s) should I learn to make a video game?

2 Answers

Most games are created in a higher level programming languages like C++ C# I am quite unsure of how to do this on mac, I hope this helps, happy coding!

Thank you :) I just started to learn how to program with C. Should I first learn C++ or C#?

Hm... I would look on microsoft developer tools I think it is xna game studio I would read up on this, http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=23714 I believe this runs off C#, but have a good research online I wish I could be more help!
