Learning XNA in college for game programming ? Is it actually useful ? Watch
But as far as I'm aware the XNA language is officially dead, so there im asking is there even any point in learning this language at all ? the tutorials on the internet don't seem to be very helpful even
If you are either:
- Learning to build games
- Learning .NET
- Learning any of the languages supported by .NET
Then XNA is a perfectly good educational tool. Particularly when it comes to learning about how game development works, it will teach you a lot more in a short space of time than C++ will (which is probably why it has been chosen).
If you're learning XNA with the intent of using it as a commercial platform, you're wasting your time.
