Hi! Guys. I want to make a game in C++. I don't know anything about game programming at the moment, but will make it one day. :) could you suggest me , great game ideas in C++. game that is presentable and interesting. Please give your best ideas and suggest great tuts or resources to learn quickly. I have to deliver it to someone as early as possible.

what do i need to include to make games? eg..graphics libraries etc.

Your help would be appreciated.

No idea what's best. That depends on what you like. And what you know. Since we are ignorant of both, what can we say? Craps is a game. So is Halo. Are they great? Depends.

Try Allegro 5 or SFML 1.6. (SFML2 is nearing completion.)

Program a bouncing ball.
Then, program a VERY SIMPLE Tetris clone.
After that, look into scripting languages.
Start simple. Read in a file that says something like:

show background.jpg
show hero.png
play music.mp3
print "Hero Game by Techy23!"

Go from there.

Also, hire yourself a music guy and an art guy.

Have fun!
