I want to know is with XNA 4.0 (and C#) How do I exactly make a top down shooter? I have been looking for ages, but have been unable to find out how.

If someone could tell me how to get started with it or possibly link me to a good easy to understand tutorial that would be fantastic!

The FAQ explicitly says "how to make (or start making) a particular type of game" questions are off topic. – doppelgreener Apr 24 '12 at 10:22

@DarkMiner You can ask the question in chat when you get the required rep. – Byte56 Apr 24 '12 at 17:05

There are plenty of examples on the XNA creators club on how to get started with making games. In fact I remember them giving you the link while you are downloading XNA to the samples: rendering this question quite lazy indeed.

The XNA community project on CodePlex also has a slew of examples.
