I'm not worried about SOPA creating censorship, that will not stand for long. I'm worried that they'll succeed in stopping piracy!

I think a puzzle game would be nice.  :)
Reflex games are difficult to make in TI-BASIC because of its speed; you would have to put a lot of work into optimizing the heck out of it.

I think a puzzle game would be awesome.  My first (published) game was a puzzle game, and I think it's an excellent place to start.

My first published game was a Platformer, Spacky Emprise. It sucked, but I really learned quite a ton. That's what I would recommend for you.

puzzle games are the way to start, especially if you want to make an RPG later on.

Platformers are incredibly fun to make in BASIC, but puzzles are fun to play :D

I voted puzzle because RPGs are a PITA to make :)
I am actually working on one now. If you feel the need, check it out (in sig).

Good luck on your first game :) you will feel so amazing when you finish it. I know I did after my first game.

But there's so many axe programmers XP
I'm still staying as TI-BASIC (I might use some axe but that's when speed is really important)
