FWIW, there's an interesting ab initio F# games primer here.

A Gentle Introduction to Haskell is one of the canonical on-line Haskell tutorials.  Also the O'Reilly book Real World Haskell is available on-line for free (the print edition isn't even out yet).

These would both be beginner's level resources.  For an interesting project which involved reconstructing a version of the quake-3 engine, in Haskell (with FRP), see Frag (page includes link to the dude's undergraduate thesis on it).  That would count as an intermediate browse/advanced read. 

Damn, there was one other...ah here's an interesting article on constructing a game loop using monads (this would be intermediate I guess).  It's not great, but it is interesting.

I have a terrible habit of getting distracted by shiny new things (like learning new programming languages) which I'm trying to kick, so I haven't actually read/followed this whole tutorial, but it might make a nice addition to the Haskell resources: http://learnyouahaskell.com/

I'm offended that you don't have resources for LOLCODE Mock Anger

LOL, I can't wait until that C++ interpreter for it comes out.

I just updated the front page of the thread with some beginner level stuff for using Silverlight, a pretty powerful framework from the looks of it...check 'em out.

Just wondering if anyone here has read any of the books in the Game Programming Gems series. Are those any good and worth mentioning?

There's definitely some good stuff in them. The usefulness of the articles isn't always consistent--some aren't as in-depth as the topic deserves, and some aren't really applicable to a broad range of games--but overall, they're pretty good quality. My bigger complaint is that the topics are so varied that I only find a fraction of the articles relevant to my own interests. I love reading and learning from them anyway, but it makes it hard to justify the price tag. Best thing to do is browse the index at http://www.introgamedev.com/ and find if any particular volume has a wealth of articles you'd be interested in.

Do you all think it would be a good idea to keep track of a few forums where people can find help on specific languages? Either way, here are my contributions to the Lua portion:

Beginner
An Introduction to Lua
Programming in Lua, First Edition (Written for Lua 5.0)
Intermediate
Lua 5.1 Reference Manual
Books
Lua 5.1 Reference Manual
Programming in Lua, Second Edition (Written for Lua 5.1)

Edit: Improved organization

This is a very very good series! Like David Pittman said, some articles are more interesting than others, but its bound to happen when you cover as many topics as this series does. One important note about the series is that it's not intended to teach people how to program, rather it explains the author(s) approach to dealing with specific gameplay programming issues. In order to get the most out of this book, I'd recommend the reader be at or close to an intermediate level. Hope that helps!

I disagree with linking to 'The C Programming Language' PDF, it's a pirated ebook/warez thing and to add insult to injury the person who is hosting the copyrighted material has added annotations to the PDF which are false and misleading.

Persons should just fork out the $15 for a used dead tree version on amazon

Well, to address your post the book is not a warez. I assure you I would not link any warez on this site. You can actually google this book fairly easily without having to go to any "warez" site. I looked through the book itself and it seems you are complaining about one singular note (on page 19) which can be easily ignored. However, if it is really that bothersome I have changed the link to a version without the note. Here is the link: http://youth.dlmu.edu.cn/book/bookdown/book1187785004.pdf

Just updated the page with hose links for Lua as well Wink

It's never been released for free on the internet so it is warez.

If it had been surely the homepage for the book would mention this or host it. http://cm.bell-labs.com/cm/cs/cbook/

Or perhaps the publisher would also show this?  No.

Fair enough, I suppose I can add it to the book resources links under the C heading. Besides, there are plenty of free C books and tutorials online for free and this book is pretty cheap online if you need a print reference.

Microsoft has a C++ beginner's guide available for download. I've skimmed through a little bit and it seems like a  pretty good resource for newbies.
