Visual Basic (VB) is the third-generation event-driven programming language and integrated development environment (IDE) from Microsoft for its COM programming model. Visual Basic is relatively easy to learn and use.

Visual Basic was derived from BASIC and enables the rapid application development (RAD) of graphical user interface (GUI) applications, access to databases using Data Access Objects, Remote Data Objects, or ActiveX Data Objects, and creation of ActiveX controls and objects. Scripting languages such as VBA and VBScript are syntactically similar to Visual Basic, but perform differently.

it would be wise to buy a book on the language you're attempting to learn, as they can oftentimes be more in depth than Internet sources.

I got one, it's boring to read...

Nothing worthwhile in life comes easily. If you can't seem to study from it or find the subject material boring then you should either think of something useful and personally meaningful you can do or find another hobby.

The Visual Basic language is designed to be human readable and accessible to everyone from novice programmers to advanced system architects.

Visual Baic (VB.NET) and C# from .Net family languages from Microsoft. Both are same but syntaxwise these languages are different. If you are from a vb background its is easy to study vb.net http://vb.net-informations.com , c# syantaxes are more like Java and C++. Both languages are Object Oriented.

Haha, dude I know that feeling, I currently have a few books I am reading to learn C++ and a few books on networking and security. Try taking it in in bits, a chapter at a time. I always find that it makes it slightly less boring.

VB is one of the more evil creations of Microsoft to torment mainly young students in programming classes. If you though Office was cruel than do not try to develope Add-Ins for Office with VB.
Writing a game with VB is merely impossible. Try Java (e.g. Minecraft) or C++ (direct access to DirectX and OpenGL) or flash for device independend support.

also if you are looking to learn to make games, Adobe Flash is what you will be looking at, which means learning Action Script.
