What is the best language for games? I have the most experience with Java, but i''m willing to learn any language.. just tell me which language is best.. thx By reading forums like this, C, or C++ is probably the best programming language.. What is the best of the two? C++ is more object-oriented if i''m not mistaken.. so it must be more suitable, right.. (pardon my english, my native language is dutch)

Nope.

Don''t let the zealots fool you, there really is no best language. C and C++ are, however, by far the most popular. And C++ is not more suitable just because it is ''object-oriented''. Object-oriented does not mean good by any means.

Most people use C++ for game programming for various reasons...but it all depends on what platform you are programming for...

well if you know Java, then pick C++ over C, cuz you already know( i hope) the deal of OO programming...

The BEST language is the one you''ll get help for developping
with. If the language is easy but you have no help to learning
it. (I had this problem with Delphi (pascal for windows). So,
I decided to look at C/C++ (the first contains the base of the
second) and I found a LOT of help for a LOT people. And there a
LOT of book that teaches this language.

So, I recommend you to learn C/C++, it is a little hard but you
will not regret it.
