    Hi, I'm learning on how to program 2D and 3D games using C++. I would like to ask for recommendations regarding compiler for C++?

    Thank you so much :)

    If you are just learning at this stage, my advice is don't worry about it and use whatever is easiest to set up.

    If you're working on Windows, go for Microsoft's Visual Studio (technically the compiler is MSVC).
    If you're working on Mac or Linux, they will have a compiler already installed, which will either be GCC or Clang. Use that.
