  • Trying to learn game development so I need to learn coding, am I learning wrong?
    C# is about as object-oriented as a programming language can get. The object-oriented paradigm is unintuitive and is easy for both beginners and experts to produce bad code in. If you're just starting out, I'd recommend working with a more procedural programming language such as Lua (LOVE2D, LÖVR, Defold). Once you've got that down, C# will be a bit easier to handle.
