A programming language is how a human gets a computer to do things. If you can't get the computer to do anything then the game doesn't exist.

So programming languages are how you make games (or anything else that runs on a computer).

You're basically asking "how do my eyes help for seeing the world"?

So, are you asking what is a Programming Language used for in games.


Uhh...can I say....EVERYTHING. YOu name it, the programming langauge is used for it.

Maybe Wikipedia can help.

If you have anymore questions, then feel free to ask.

First, you have to read through, and pick a programming language that is for you.
Then you need to learn to program in that language.
Then you need to learn to program (if you expect to be any good at what follows).

--- --- Order of what follows can vary
Then learn some API's for console manipulation (win32/linux specific) and make some text games.
Then learn some sound api's to add noises/music to those text games.
Learn XML/scripting ect to add to those games.
Learn networking api's and make multiplayer version of those text games.
Then take the leap, and move a text game to be a graphical game in OpenGL/directx.
