I'd suggest choosing something a bit different to C#, Java et al. Why not take a look at something like lisp? You may not want to write games with it but it'll give you a different view on programming.

I doubt you'd want to learn Pascal, it's ok, but kind of out-dated. You might want to learn a scripting language, to create game scripts, such as Python or LISP(although, LISP is going to be pretty different from C++, so it may take some getting used to). You don't need to learn another langauge, but a scripting language can come in handy.

How about sticking with C++ and be able to master it???
Otherwise Assembly would be a good choice to learn the basics of what is really going on...

I'd agree that pascal is unlikely to be of much value to you, but that a language with a different philosophy would help you become a stronger programmer overall.

If employment is your main concern, you should look at job listings to figure out what employers want that you don't already have.

I've been learning C++ for 7 years and still don't feel I know it.

Are you totally comfortable with templates, the standard library, metaprogramming, design patterns, policy based design, etc?

I'd recommend Lisp/Scheme as well as Python. Also read How to Design Programs

SQL is a good candidate too, since you might very well end up using it in C++ projects.

Scheme or Lisp would be good bets (try petewood's link, or: this or this - that last one is a bit sketchy though).

Python or Ruby are good choices too.

Personally I'd recommend OCaml or Haskell but then I always do ;)
