    Be patient. No need to bump your posts every few minutes. Not only is this rude (other people making posts deserve to have theirs seen too), but it's also against the forum rules.

    Now, to answer your question:

    What kind of programming experience do you have? Game programming is one of the hardest areas of programming. Not only do you need a firm grasp on logic and basic programming, but you may also need to know more advanced concepts in physics and artificial intelligence.

    Start small. Make a space invaders or pac-man game. Yes, I urge you to take classes. I don't recommend DeVry - I'd go more towards an actual university, or at least a local community college and THEN a 4-year university.

    The fact is that what you're jumping into headfirst is a VERY hard topic. There are no "langman" (layman?) terms to describe it.
