Is there any websites I can go to to learn how to program? I am a gamer, and i really would like to make the games rather than just play them all the time.

There are all sorts of information on-line to get you into programming, but before I point you in some random direction. What kind of system are you targeting?

For example, if you wanted to make an x-box or PC game, you could use XNA HERE with a getting started link HERE.

Or perhaps you want to make flash games on-line, you could use FlashDevelop HERE, with a helpful link HERE.

It will be easier to find the right tutorials to get you started if you search with the proper keywords.

One thing to note about XNA is that it's no longer supported, I'd recommend checking out MonoGame instead. It's meant as an open-source implementation of XNA and it's cross-platform so you aren't locked into developing for Microsoft systems.

As for more information regarding programming, I'd also suggest looking at our stickies in this very subforum.

You could also check out  CodeAcademy as an introduction to programming in general.

I didn't know that about XNA, a quick look around with google indicates that XNA studio is ending as of last month (April 1), but there is no official report from microsoft to say otherwise. MonoGame does seem promising...

Remember that there are all sorts of game genres. An easy one to start off with is text.
