    It depends on what kind of 3d things you want to make.
    Generally, 3Ds Max is best for game modeling, architecture, worlds, and stuff like that. Maya is great for cinematic animation and video effects, and Cinema 4D leans towards motion graphics. One of the biggest perks of ZBrush is that the modeling process is very similar to sculpting clay, so if you like that sort of thing I would check it out.
    Just try to think about what you want to do as far as 3d graphics go, and feel free to try as many as you can and see which is best for you.

    I agree with what Crusty said. It is all about what you want to do with your creativity should you posses some. I for one would recommend you starting off with an actual well rounded software like 3ds max, maya, or cinema 4d. They allow you to get a true grasp of the 3D world and they don't limit you on what you want to create as long as you know how to. Zbrush is all about sculpting and is usually used as a tool in combination with 3ds max or others I listed. Models are created in said programs and imported into Zbrush for extreme detailing. If you were really interested, I would suggest you start with 3ds Max. It is my personal choice and I believe it's the best do it all type software. It has a friendly user interface and the amount of tutorials, tip, help is endless. Just my 2 cents though.

    Well I like Cinema 4D and its good to start. You get used to it aND THEN u can go check out 3ds Max, which might be the best for overall modeling.
