I have tried him but it never works out on youtube because there is nothing helping me through my errors so preferably something that is interactive would be great :)

although if you know anything in java it would be helpful if you could teach me in some way! I have netbeans and eclipse so I am all set there :)

you need to learn things step by step.. Creating a game takes a looong time.

There is a also www.learnnowjava.com; however that isnt' free like the Oracle Trail. wwww.CodeRanch.com also has a ton of professionals, but they wont do your code for you, just help you along the way.

For a starting programmer, I recommend Stanford's CS106A Programming Methodologies http://see.stanford.edu Just click on the Courses button.

I wanted to jump right into java too, but I couldn't make it work. Java assumes an object oriented approach and so even the books, I read through and liked "HeadFirst Java", assume that you can code simple procedures, and get results out of a nested loop, etc.. So I would say learn Python enough to code your game in it. They are teaching it with a functions approach and it really won't be that hard to convert your Python to Java.

I have to disagree... I started mainly coding seriously in Java. You just need to spend time learning how the lang works..
