Well, I think you should learn to program. Basic computer programming. Once you control this, you might grasp the concept of gaming programming, even though it's different.

Python is a really nice tool for programming on the computer and it has quite a lot of good tutorials on the site.

@ nqkoi1

python has nothing to do with games^^.
I know I might seem off topic with my previous post, but what I meant is that if you know how to simply program with a computer then it'll be easier to program games.
Python won't allow you to program flash games though. it's only a great tool to learn how to do simple programmation on your CPU.
I don't think that it'll be easy for someone who has never experienced programming on the CPU to learn to program games, though it is possible...
