Hi, I have pretty good knowledge in C, but I wish to learn more in OOP especially for game development. Which one should I go for, C# or C++?

If you are looking to go into the field of game development I would recommend C++ as it is the standard. If you are wanting to work on your own C# is definitely easier to get something started up with.


To poster above me:

I'm going to kindly steal that linkage for future reference =)

C# vs. C++ eventually comes down to a matter of personal preference. What you will find is that you are perfectly well able to complete various programming and game programming problems equally well through either language. I personally prefer C++ because I feel that high-level languages simply obfuscate the lower-level programming that you'd be doing anyway. Other people prefer high-level language usage because they don't want to look at the computer's internals - memory pointers, and low-level functions. It's all a matter of which language you feel most comfortable using.
