Lmao I heard that others are doing all the work so they decided to make it themselves instead of keeping you in charge.

Honestly, the only true way to learn and master a skill is with it being passed down from another human being. Yes, you can search online and find many great resources, but ultimately, your best bet would to go to a legitimate college and learn from a true master. There's something about hearing an actual person speak that just makes text seem so... Lacking. If you truly want to learn and master programming, learn it from another person and not from the internet, even if this "online university" is legit.

Honestly, only if you are determined. And if you can afford it. If you looked at the prices you will notice its nearly 1000$ a class. Mostly for rich people, or people who served in the military.
But I can guarantee you an online college alone wont be the best way to become great at coding. At UT in texas they are main in programming. Many state colleges will have game development courses (and maybe awesome professors) and cost little compared to full sail

Just start. Your age doesn't mean jack ****, don't make excuses. Start with javascript because it can make games up to a point and its the bare version of good programming.

Start now. Read the tutorial and learn, if you need help pm me.

Thanks! :D

Though the javascript can get difficult later on in the tutorial, just keep doing trial and error until you get it right and you learn from the mistake. (When i started i made mistakes in functions mostly)
