It seems you can make games using VB but what exactly is it?

I don't think you can learn Python if you are a programming beginner right ?

You can learn any programming language any time, you'll just might have an easier time if you do what i suggested in this thread. Though if you do want to skip everything i suggested an go straight to programming, Python is a great start.

I wont skip!! I already learned HTML (pretty easy) and I went to CSS now
It's just when I see a program infront of me I get an urge to know what's it doing

Visual Basic is a programming language for desktop applications.
Python, I don't know.

Ever heard of C#? Basically, C# is Visual Basic with different syntax (1 word: ripoff)

HTML is not really a programming language in the same sense you think of it, it's a markup language. Also you haven't learned HTML you've only scratched the surface, it get much complicated when you start integrating it with other languages like PHP or go into HTML 5 and start fooling around with canvas.

Also C# is not a beginner language and not respectable educational institution would teach you it first. I would suggest python or java for free programming languages. More python if you want to make games since the extensive free library called pygame exists.

Seriously, Visual Basic is the easiest to learn :P
If you get the syntax of it, it is very easy to learn other languages.

@JalpaneoFez You mean game development right? Try learning python, it's relatively easy and with the library pygame you can start producing some interesting games.

ActionScript is good

Erm I know that, but it's good to know it
