You posted this as a Game programming article and I moved it to the forum for discussion

pretty tough idea mate. always remember that these games are not written by a single person. It needs a team operation atleast of 20 members. So plan accordingly. C# with directx is a good option.

yeah of course i have 5 to 7 members group. 3 are good programmers of C++ as well as C#. but not touched DirectX. i also require some 3d professional. i hope that one of us will be devoted to this field.

what about the XNA game studio? Have any one used it before?

nope, i haven't heard of XNA game studio. Even if U have enough number of programmers u shud consider the timeline too. for 3D pro u can hire a freelancer.

yeah thats not as difficlut as to make those parts. XNA Game Studio provides you to assemble everything at a place. you can import .x files which relate to directX files and it can be used in game.

@migmoto007 can you imagine that mario game has acheived 7 world records in gaming? and have you played mario? thats like a child's stuff. things doesn't matter much so in the same way tools and studio doesn't matter much. matter is the hard work and devotion. why not you can make a big game in C# and xna studio? i had made a terrain and take a man and ran him on that terrain from my key pad just to check out that it works or not. i think to make game in C++ with old game engines is much much more difficult bro. have you ever developed win32 apps in C++? you have to control handles and blah blah there is no such things in C# a very high level language. yet an issue that it may be a little slow. thats the only issue. not hot complicated or cold complicated. haha
