I would suggest c++.
There are number of reasons, first because c++ got many many libraries that u can work with, and creating an openGL/directX game is really easy with c++.
2nd, c++ is the most common language ppl use, so u''l be able to get much help in forums and stuff, and many tutorials online ..
3rd, cause i just started making these things and it''s really easy and cool with c++ :D

Given the nature of your post and in a futile attempt to circumvent another language flaming war, I would suggest English.
[edit]
As to why, it appears you already know it. I do not disparage languages you do not know, but you should stick with what you're comfortable with. Of course, if you want to learn sanskrit it may be a good idea to try to write your game in that.

Use whatever language that your''e comfortable with.. May it be BCPL, Fortran, C, Java or Basic.. And why not add Brainf**k aswell...

I myself should prefer Fortran...

I would suggest writting the game in Python (http://www.python.org/) which you can learn very quickly. Some would argue against it for performance reasons (it is a very high-level language), but these arguments are usually far less grounded than they appear, and if anything becomes a bottleneck you can easily rewrite a function in C++ without changing any of the Python code that uses it, thanks to boost.python (http://www.boost.org/)

I was looking at that and had seen this:
quote:

```s``s``sii`ki
`k.*``s``s`ks
``s`k`s`ks``s``s`ks``s`k`s`kr``s`k`sikk
`k``s`ksk

(All whitespace is optional and arbitrary. Some former versions of this page gave a uselessly complicated and inefficient program.)



"Some former versions of this page gave a uselessly complicated and inefficient program" WHAT!?!?!? It all looks that way to me. I think anyone spending time actually learning someone like this has WAY to much free time...

H0bbes:
What do you mean by on-line. Multiplayer or something like MSN games? If your going after MSN game you could use flash. If not I would go with C++.
