Hi y'all! I don't know if this is the best place to put this little speech/presentation of mine, but here goes:

I've always wanted to get into Game Development, like REALLY badly. But sadly, I've never found the point to break into it and I have no idea what programs or anything I could use. All I really need is some poeple that I can ask for guidance and getting on my feet. I see all of these amazing games and have all these ideas, i just don't know where to put them. So, if anyone reads this, would someone give me a quick run-down/guide to help me getting started on my first game? (I know it's a bit to ask, but any help would be GREATLY appreciated)
P.S. I'm definitely joining this group because everyone seems friendly and i would love to give feedback and test any game :D

Unigine currently has some Indie-prices for their engine:
Unigine.com

What do you think about something like that?

I as a Linux user would love to use that engine but as being a student its price is still to high.
And why should I even bother when getting Windows 4free with MSDNAA and also getting UDK and CryEngine 4free?

Can someone recommend a good free (don't need to be open-source) (3D) game engine for Linux?

Beside the now open idt4, there is also Cafu Cafu.de and Panda3D Panda3d.org , both more or less complete, but in slow development. Another closed cheap engine is ShiVa3D Stonetrip.com

MSDNAA isn't free. Ask your university to buy some Unigine engine licenses.
Doom 3 engine will be released soon, other active developed engines are Crystal Space, Blender game engine and Ogre3D, they are also used in some smaller commercial games.

You are right. MSDNAA isn't free itself. The university has some agreement with Microsoft. But it is free for me. That is the point.

There is no university or student version of the Unigine engine available. So which one should be bought? Indie or Professional? Both seem kind of odd for a university. Also why should they buy it when CryEngine and UnrealEngine and Unity3D are freely available with there tools and SDK? ;-)

ID Tech 4 - I hope they get it out really soon. Currently Ftp.idsoftware.com is down. I can't get anything from there.

Crystal Space seems currently really quite. I know that they try to get a version 1.9 and 2.0 out. But on their mailing-list and forum and website news are coming very slowly.

Ogre3D is just a graphics engine. Much more is needed for a game. Maybe GameKit would be a good point to start with.

I already did something with BGE. I think I stick with it for now. It has all needed tools build right in.

There is a studio working on a complete game dev tool set with a ogre based engine and build in blender support.

Thank you for this very honest criticism, I am currently fixing the game and expect that I will release a new version, have received lots of email about the bugs so definitely I will fix it. At first I thought this game will not be that successful cause this is my first game release in IndieDB and ModDB and this is the very first time I created a game, but when I saw that there is a progress and some people love the story and game play, I feel that I need to make it better and release a new version so that everyone will enjoy. I am really happy because people supported the game even though it is not good graphically, I admit it and I promise to release a newer version and a better graphics. The dark part is only at the game play, the next levels are very well lighted. The game play was dark cause that is the part where there is a war in the Urban and if there is war expect darkness and besides my idea about it is evening setting. Anyway, I guess it's not effective and I really appreciate your feedback about this. Again thank you and have a great day.
