Hi,

 

I am starting to learn games development and I want to know the best programming language to start with and to make 3D games with.

 

I already know Python, but in my opinion, I don't really like it.

 

What can you suggest? And what tutorials can you guys recommend?

 

Thanks,

 

Ryan

sorry but there actually is no best language - beginners hate hearing this answer but its true

 

some common languages used though

c++

java

c#

c

python

lua

 

by far these are not the only ones - but they are the most common I have personally seen - you really gotta read about all of them to make a decision..

ApochPiQ said it pretty darn well:

http://www.gamedev.net/blog/355/entry-2254835-which-x-should-i-use/

 

Instead of answering the question, he abstracted it one level and wrote a few functions with a few variables. Just plug in your language(s) or api(s) into the article and you'll have your answer!

 

I'm back from a pretty long hiatus and started re-noticing these patterns. I was just about to write a similar post but saw he had beaten me to it (by about a year and a half).
