    For starters i'm completely new with macs, i just bought my first one in august. For some reason i have a feeling i might get laughed at for this question but im going to ask it anyway... is it possible to create simple games using script editor?

    It's certainly possible, much as it is possible to pound a nail with the handle of a screwdriver. but for something very simple, absolutely.

    I made text-based games for online chatting in IRC years ago, so, I'd say yes.

    I would suggest learning Python (which is not difficult) and using the pygame module to write 2D games.

    I've done numerous AppleScript text games ;)

    Although, if you want a good place to start I would suggest Unity. It is an amazingly powerful game engine and it has all of the really complex 3D stuff built in (like the physics engine, and it also has many shaders built in...). It can use either Javascript or C#.

    Good Luck!
