To elaborate on that, I would recommend staying away from all scripting languages and lesser known languages. Why? You want to not only make an awesome game, but gain valuable and reusable skills, using tools that are widely excepted and used by as many people as possible (in case you strike it rich and need to hire people for the next release :-)
Here is a list of games that use Python as a scripting language: https://wiki.python.org/moin/AppsWithPythonScripting
Here is a list of games that use Lua scripting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Lua-scripted_video_games
Scripting is a valuable part of modern games and it is a reusable skill. These tools are widely accepted and they are used by many people.
I specifically recommend against staying away from all scripting languages .
