Is VB good for game development?

P: n/a
Is VB good for game development? Or is C# or some other language better?
I'm a beginner programmer and would like to get into game development. I
can't find any decent tutorials, so links would be very helpful.

Thanks

What type of game development? C++ is considered to be the only
language for "serious" games, but that is just an opinion. If you want
to avoid C++, then I would probably recommend going with C# just so
you could use Microsoft XNA studio, as I don't believe they have
launched a VB version of XNA yet.

Also, here's a VB game programming site I found by using google - I
didn't look through the articles, but it seems to be what you are
asking for.

PCGamer,

In my opinion you should not use managed code, so that is either VB.Net or
C#
