Just a curiosity question. I am going to school for Programming - I only have a couple classes done so far, but I wanted to know. I really would love to do game programming, so... are there any special classes or certifications I should make sure to do? I am currently taking Visual C#, (and networking, but that is not programming). Is there something not in common curriculum that I should look for to do game programming? Thanks for any answers. :)

I believe you need to be well versed in the C-Language and also in C++ language... Not too sure of the others thou.

C++ is the primary language for games. C# is more for utilities and business applications.

C++ is my favorite to use, and I love its syntax. I hate when I can't see ; everywhere and they use indentation like python does.
