But I must say it is an interesting subject, and it has been ever since I played my first video game in the eighties.
http://www.gamedev.net/ is one of the sites that are dedicated for game programming.
it addresses a wide range of developers including beginners.
It has a link for gaming jobs, books, and many other useful resources.
So if you were considering game programming as a career, or as a hobby, you should keep http://www.gamedev.net/ in your favorites.
