Revolution3D written completley in VB and Truevision 3d Uses VB and C++.
but IMHO if you are a visual basic programmer,You won't have the knowlage or experiance needed to make a decent game engine or at least it will be very diffecult to make one using this knowlage.
Also IMHO C++ is considered as a must for entering Game Programming world.
so try experiancing C++ first before thinking of making a game engine.

Both VB and C++ are turing complete which basically means you can write any program in each.
C++ is compiled natively. That means instructions get turned into x86 assembly code.
VB is an interpretted language which means that when you compile the code it does not turn into machine code until it is actually run. This has its advantages, but also means its less effecient.
VB has a user interface built in which means its easier to use for GUI applications.
So VB isnt really the best environment for games. And it probably isnt the easiest to use for beginners either.
I'd recommend something like macromedia flash or some kind of game maker software.

The old VB (pre .net) could actually compile to native code. But the problem is more that the design of VB doesn't lend itself very well for writing optimal code. Most game engines are able to handle loads of data, this will be a problem when you're going to implement it in VB. But it can be done of course
Currently working on: the 3D engine for Tomb Raider.
