become a better problem solver?

how do you learn to become a better problem solver? i know how to code but i dont understand the necessary steps to solve the problem.... like algorotjms and such. i feel really dumb because of that and it makes me sad because I want to make games and my programming skills are just not good....

general though, the types of algorithms that you'll use will vary wildly depending on what you're working on. One helpful strategy is to look for similar projects to what you're working on that may be up on GitHub

I'll start with the C++ for Dummies. I don't have any previous knowledge about programming. I love video games too, that I play them the whole day and no time for other stuff

The best way to go is go for the simplest method first before going to a more advance statements. You can try basic arguments and statement for coding to solve a problem. Although it may take more time and lines but still it's a good practice and eventually you will gain more experience and strategy.

Study the basics of programming. If you want to develop games, I would suggest to learn the basics of C, C++ and Java. Most games are in Java. I tried developing an Android app but it's not a game. I don't know what's the better application to use in programming right now but I used Eclipse before. It really takes time and practices and patience. There are so many open source code right now that you can check. Also tutorials in Youtube.

You become a better problem solver through time. Its not an overnight thing. You really have to be very careful. Just like in a ladder, you will not reach high if will not take one step upward. I believe what you need is just a little research and all will be well.

We must learn of how to divide the operations and make the problem much simpler in our minds. Complex problem are just being made when the principles of the rule are applied that's why learning it without the algorithm can help you solve the problem. Remember to chop down the problem to more simpler and solve it one by one to get the answer.
