use C# if you don't care about the microsoft only thing and you really like the language.

C++ vs C ? IMO C++ is easier to learn in because of its flexibility, and can do all C can plus more. Unless you have a lot of C experience and can do anything in C, I'd pick C++.

In the end the choice is yours.

edit: oh, if you program for the ps2 then avoid C#

Well, a quick tour through the "Gems" books and most other game programming litterature would show a ton of C++. You can probably do the math from there.

Which do you know? If you don''t know any, trust me, you''ll have many other more interesting problems before choosing a language becomes significant.

If you know all three, pull one out of a hat.

C# makes it alot easier to get to the point, which is to program your game. If you desire to use OpenGL then the Tao.OpenGL binding is also an excellent resource. Your project would also be completely portable if that matters to you.

Downside: Target PC would need to have the .NET framework installed. Not all PC''s have this, yet. It is ~25 megs large.
