Hello Dahamonnah, welcome to IndieDB.
Some general notes about using forums:
Have a nice day.

If I had to say, start simple, because you wont be developing the next minecraft without loads of experience and knowledge.
Make something simple, rather something small and get it done than something great that gets added to the indie db never to be released list
Infact I want to see you make something simple, Im pretty sure there is a 3D version of gamemaker and will even offer my 3D services to you.
So get your tools and start.

If you want to get into game development quickly and start pushing out titles quickly, download Unity3D and use it with C#.
C++ is the choice if you want to be a more hardcore game programmer and want to work in a big game studio one day with in-house engines etc.
I use Unity3D and C#, and have released 4 published games, and about to release my company's own first game. Unity3D is also great because it's multi-platform and you can maximise your revenue.

I started learning code through actionscript and java.
If you want you can pick up a small engine like flashpunk and build small games running off actionscript with that (that can be quite fun).
So i would recomend java most likely out of all the choices to which you can use unity to make some fun games.
You can use the following link that has a level which I put together for my school if you want.
It includes a unity project and code for a 3d platformer.
The best thing you can do as a starting out developer is pick up an engine and just dig into it and play with it.

Im gonna say, grab youself a good 3D Guy, get into Unity and build a game. Thats the best way to get into doing real game development.
