All these great games out on market, are most of them created with C++? Or what is the main gaming language? I know some of them are made with engines, but are they made with C++? Thanks for the info. -komi

Practically every high performance game written today is done with C/C++ and perhaps some assembly for the speed critical parts.

Yes, just about every game made is done in C++. Also just because they use an engine to build the game dosen''t mean they don''t have to right the code to use the engine. My point is, if you have a engine, you have to right code to use it.

If you want to see examples, gamedev provide code to many games such as doom in there code vault page.

Hope that helped

hey man, c++ sounds great. what is the learning curve on it? can you make games like "Tiberian Sun" or " UnReak", with the language? I''m sure that is tough coding, and if you know of any good starter tutorials, that would surely help also. Thanks again!

komi,

Yes, I think that UnReal and Tiberian Sun were written with C++ (A 3D game like Unreal needs a 3D modeler, though), and maybe Assembly.

C++ seems scary for those who try to learn it, but once you do, you''ll find that it''s a really great language.

Here are a list of links to sites that can help:
