    Actionscript V. Objective C


    I am not an experienced game designer...I barely consider myself a beginner. But, Since I have dabbled a bit, I was wondering what others think, especially intermediate to highly experienced game designers. What would you say, is Actionscript easier to learn with regards to game programming than Objective C? I think so.

    AFAIK, you should not use Objective C any more.

    I cant tell if you should use Actionscript, that depends at what you want to create; "create a game" is a very broad term.

    I don't know nothing about programming either, But I found ActionScript 2 very easy to learn. I hope to one day be a real game programmer.

    ActionScript is easy to learn if you're not a programmer, but it presents its' own problems (numerous versions of the goto command for one), and ObjectiveC is Apple's propriety language from what I understand.

    Learn C/C++ as that's the most common 'games' programming language. As most other common languages are C-derived (Java, for instance), this will be very useful to you. Although games programming isn't purely about the language.

    Regards,
