In most instances, there is no definitive answer to a question like this. However...
In the case of modern programming languages, there is absolutely no doubt that Python is the absolute easiest programming language (that is ubiquitous / limitless).
It is, by far, the fastest to learn -- if you're talking about the major languages (if you're talking about RAD tools, that's a different story -- but in your case that's irrelevant).
However, VB.Net would be a better option than Python if you want to combine two goals: (1) ease of learning, and (2) understanding the more complex nature of programming. Everything you do in VB.NET will parallel C# or Java -- and/or make it much easier to get into C++ at some point (although that's a very long way away -- just about everyone that starts with C++ never makes it to professional-programmer level, unless they're "on the spectrum").
The beauty of Python, however, is that you essentially have limitless zero-cost libraries you can integrate, where the libraries do 90% of the work and you're only "gluing" the code together. In other words, Python is a great way to start to learn AI.
With that said, there are tons of things that are not great about Python; which is the reason we have many languages and each has its own best-fit.
However, before you start doing any of this
If you think there is a short journey between now and writing games .. or you do not enjoy reading (in English) several hours every day (not only to learn, but to maintain your knowledge because tech changes extremely fast and you constantly have to be reading). If any of these things do not sound like fun, then ... stop now.
Too many people want to program without realizing the very unique nature of what it takes to be a "coder". It takes an extremely unique type of person that enjoys reading/learning non-stop, every..single..day..of..their..life. For many people, that can be a bit much.
Many people think there is some sort of shortcut.... There isn't. Not to reach the point of being a real programmer that can earn good money (or build products that people will pay for, either way).
The simplest analogy I can give you is this:
Imagine you came here and said "I want to become a chess-playing (or Go) grand-master and compete. Where do I start.
Anyone can learn to play chess or Go. They can learn the rules, the basics, etc. But that will never be enough to become "good" or competitive. If you want to become competitive, you have to dedicate your life to it.
This is about the closest analogy you can equate to programming. Tons of people "learn how to program" ... VERY FEW people actually "know" how to program to make money with the trade. Those that do, spend thousands of hours and ... unfortunately ... there is no shortcut.
I know my advice may seem harsh; however, it is the best advice you will ever receive. If someone encourages you, and this isn't something you're really serious about -- then that person will cause you to lose hundreds of hours of your life ... for nothing.
If you're really serious about it, and you love to spend every day reading/learning, then it's a great thing to learn. If not, there are THOUSANDS of other things in tech that you can do that will be much, much more fun :-)
