I have some pretty decent general programming skills and elementary C/C++ skills. I am a complete noob in game/graphics programming and I would like to start.
I want to gradually learn, starting off by something like Pong, and gradually making more difficult stuff for learning. My ultimate goal is to make some COD:BO zombies clone (I love this game).
So what libraries/engines can you guys recommend, first to even start drawing stuff on the screen, and later more sophisticated stuff for getting a FPS going.
