    Are you mostly going to do web design and web development? Web design and web development are actually two things, for web design, you probably needs to master Photoshop, Dreamweaver, CSS etc. And for web development, you probably need to know one web programming languages such as PHP or ASP.NET etc.

    Hope this lightens you anyhow. :_)

    You could look at my website [link=http://www.personal.leeds.ac.uk/~bgy1mm]here[/link] and download BASICdraw. This is a very simple BASIC attached to a graphics editor. It is quite a good way of learning how to program in a visually appealing way.
    The documentation is on the website.

    I was looking at this:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beginning-Through-Game-Programming-Second/dp/1598633600/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1221068518&sr=8-1
    Do you think i should start off with books like this?

    Website design and game design are very different from each other.

    Game development related:

    What are you interested in? Do you want to program games or design them? Most video games are developed in C or C++; neither of these languages are friendly to beginner programmers. If you just want to get into it, I would choose an easier language and learn C++ later on. Perhaps some easier languages that are commonly suggested are Perl, Python, C#, Java...

    I personally never used that book so I cannot comment on it.

    I dont know much about how web design works. I have a website but Im not good at the design aspects of it ;)
