Oh my god.
Don't ever compare Python to Basic on a python mailing list.
You'll get eaten alive ;-)

Seriously though,
If you take the time to learn PyGame, it's about the easiest and
best way to write a game in any language (from scratch that is.)
I highly recommend it.
In fact I'm writing a PyGame game right now.
If you're interested in seeing the source at some point,
Just ask.
Although I won't send it just yet because it has no drawing code ATM.
Just game logic.

Hope ThAt HeLPs.
Don't ever resort to Visual Basic.
If you think something would be easier in VB then ask us
and we will tell you how to do it in Python.
VB is not a good language to learn because it
is the complete opposite of every other programming language.

I really can't think of a reason to use VB over Python, C++ or Java.
