Nice grammar and vocab for a 10 year old, if you ask me. Anyways, like everyone has said before, it depends on what type of game, how you want it played, do you want this specifically for web based or download / play, etc. There are too many variables out there to point you to an answer just yet. Figure out what exactly you want done and accomplished in the end. Once you have that part figured out, we will help as much as we can.

Is Java easy to get the hang of if you already know the PHP/Flash/JS/(X)HTML/SQL aspect of programming? Also it's compiled isn't it so does it take a while?
And what about these Java Development Kits? Do I need one of those?
Thanks for your help.

I hear it's possible to make an in-browser game in C++, I don't know how tho...
How are you gonna get server bandwidth?

Hi, right i am new to this forum but from what i have read you seem like a good and friendly bunch of people.
So like everyone else that has replied to this thread i am looking to make a game. An RTS web browser game that would allow people to work there way up to become a ruler of a country or the likes and rule their fellow players. Yet at the same time there are a variety of couuntries that people can join. It will be mainly text based.
A similar style of game is called The Last Knights.
I have a server and mysql database set up.
I have some knowledge of different types of scripting, a good deal of html knowledge, so what else do i need?
im 12 and im not gonna pretend im a computer genius or anything but i would really like a starting point to making an ok game. not summit like wow or anything but just a simple game
phishtree has a good idea, thats probably the route you want to take. python games are not played in the browser, but they are easy to make

NEVER tell someone your real age on a forum.

could be done by creating s erb server in c++ for the game that is capable of generating the webpage on the fly.

I'm 15 and I'm in the middle of creating a PHP game. PHP isn't that difficult to learn - it's probably one of the simplest. It's quite hilarious that people have high ambitions of creating games, but if you have such a high ambition - instead of asking where to go, why don't you go search for the answers? There's no real answer on "how to create a game?" and if you don't know where to start, there's no real point in *wanting* to create a game - but obviously lots of people are very illustrated with their own ideas
What's the point in asking someone make it for you? It won't be made at least half the way you want, and 99 out of 100 programmers (not even being theoretical here) won't even consider making it for you, no incentive is there?
I won't even suggest anyone who is asking others to create their games to learn PHP/MySQL/whatever - as you'll just be the same when trying to learn - rush, and try and learn too soon. Nothing is magic is it?

I'm sorry, you guys here give great advice, but it seems no one reads it that posts these questions.
I read this thread and the last few pages made me want to jump off a bridge.
