My title might be a bit misleading; I've created many games before and did know where to start with those. Now, after creating many easy arcade games (pong, tetris, hardball, and several fight games), I'm getting bored. I would like to start writing a RPG.
I don't plan on the graphics in my game to be amazing; I am actually going for the look that Zelda: A Link to the Past and Zelda: The Minish Cap have.
I wrote all my other games in Java, and I consider myself to be fluent in Java. I have read in many places that C++ is the way to go for game making. I'm wondering why this is. What gives C++ an advantage over Java and would it be worth learning C++ to write my game?
Also, if anyone is interested in helping me in this game (I'm going to need artists and programming help would be nice) you can email me at JavaJunkieDestin@hotmail.com.
Thanks in advance.
