If you are good in GML (GameMaker Language, the language of GM) you can make games that are better looking then Mario and games like that, but you can't make big games like Sims or FarCry with it. If you wanna make your own games you realy should try it, GML is pretty similar to C++ but much easier, so if you know GML well then you can go to learn C++ to make more complicated games.

Thanks for that Warbird. I always wondered how so many people make games. Would this software be any good for making a massive game (e.g. the size in Mb as the Sims???). Or is it restricted in capabilities to only doing things like the Nintendo would feature?
The new version of the free game-creating program GM is released; v6.1, this is what the site says about it:
"The latest version of Game Maker is version 6.1. Version 6.1 adds a number of new features, in particular a better installer, a simple explosion and special effects generator, drawing surfaces, and an improved image editor. Also a large number of small changes were made and many bugs have been corrected. "
