    Should i use UDK

    Ok, i was looking at some engines and saw one called UDK. It seems to be an advanced drag and drop type game engine but i was wondering, is that really considered programming? Also would you recommended that i learn this or should i learn C++ if i wanna get into game design that would help me end up say creating a game like Team Fortress 2?

    UDK is an industry level game tool set. You can develop a game using assets which you create and the Unreal Engine. Game behaviour can be described through the in-house scripting language, UnrealScript. So yes, in a way you are programming.

    But just using UDK won't give you the whole picture in the development cycle of a game. Toolsets are used after the game designers have created the concepts and story, and after the game programmers have created the game engine.

    You want to learn how to make a game like Team Fortress? Read books on the topic, there are plently out there. You want to make games like Team Fortress, go to college, get a degree and work at a studio.

    Irrational numbers make no sense.
