First Programming Course


Starting to Program

So, I have finally started my first programming class (ok, its nearly over now) and have just been enjoying the crap out of myself. I don’t know how many of you read the posters on the walls around the school but one of them is a flow chart to help you choose the perfect video game you should be playing.

How to Pick the Perfect Video Game

I decided to take that poster chart and convert it into an application. After a week or two of hunting pictures and typing in short "If statements," I finally coded this simple program that helps you figure out the perfect video game for your personality.

How to Pick the Perfect Video Game is a graphic flowchart that begins by asking: “Do you want to avoid using much of your brain?” Faced with dozens of Yes or No answers, the user is asked questions like "How are your reflexes?" and "Are you on drugs?" and "Do you want the hardest game ever?" In all there are some 90 questions that potentially face the user.

Hint: answering "No" serves up more questions, whereas answering "Yes" will end the questioning fast.

I wrote the Game Picker using Visual Basic, so it won't work on Android devices. It was fun to make and quite simple. Yes, it was a lot of work but totally worth it I think. Leave a comment below and let me know how you like it, what could be better, or if you found a glitch (I found a few typos already).
