    \$\begingroup\$ Unity3d is easier. Unreal Engine or CryEngine is not for a beginner. \$\endgroup\$ – Ellis Sep 10 '11 at 9:41

If you just start in game development personally don't recommend to begin with a game engine like Unity or Cryengine because they are really complex, with a lot of functionality that may help you or not and like you're starting this will be too much.

Personally for a beginner I recommend to start with the basis so you will understand how a videogame works under the hood like Tetris, then Pacman, and later a scroller where you have to check collisions, physics, projectiles...etc...and after I recommend move on to a 3D engine...

I know that could be a little tedious but it's the best way to start in this industry and it's a path little bit hard but believe me all those little games will help you on the future..

Unity3d is the way to go, between Unity3d or CryEngine3, if you want web based product. CryEngine don't support that.

There is also other options with web support, NeoAxis Engine & Shiva 3d.

Google for more.

Edit: The term game development is a huge one. It includes a lot of thing. So, wanna be a game developer, want suggestion wont give us any clear idea about what you want to do. It's better if you tell us who/what you already are/can, and what you want to be. Give us a bigger picture so we can suggest you to fix the details.
