As games programmers, do you think .NET platform is suitable for game making? Is so, is any books on DIRECTX or OpenGL for .NET out yet?


Similar question were asked before.. it is suitable but developer won''t change from 6.0 to .net in a blink it will take a little time. I think NOW there are no books oh X or Gl from .net . but what would be the difference ?? the API remains the same tho... only the IDE changed and the compiler is fast , debugger is better "from what i heard so far".

The .NET=>native code C++ compiler should be fine for creating games. The .Net enterprise platform independent (windows/windows/or windows) Web Internet Intranet MSNNet whatever the hell it''s supposed to do for you this week .Net platform solution doesn''t really offer too terribly much for game programming, though this is mostly just me sneering at it, and is really a matter of what you consider acceptable performance and minimal hardware.

As far as I am concerned real games should be coded exclusively in assembly, and feature their own hand crafted boot sector. I don''t expect anyone to actually do this, and certainly don''t do it myself, but I have the decency to feel slightly guilty about it, and so should you.

Hmm... it seems like it''s still too early to worry whether the .NET platform is suitable for game development. Maybe later.
