C#, It's object oriented and widely used for videogames


It really depends on what you want to use to make your game, or what kind of game you want. With 3D games and more complex games, it would be best to use some kind of game engine to make them as it allows for you to easily create nearly any game you want. Some of the better and more popular game engines include Unity and Unreal Engine, both of which have been used to create games by larger companies. Also, there are game engines for nearly any type of game you want, be it RPG, point and click, adventure, whatever. When it comes to Unity, languages used for scripts are C# (As Leonardo said) and JavaScript, and Unreal Engine mainly uses C++ as it is very capable of creating very detailed and in-depth games. Here's the websites for both engines - https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/what-is-unreal-engine-4 https://unity3d.com Some more simpler games can be made using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and there are a lot of people who have already made some here on Sololearn (Check out this one, it's phenomenal - https://code.sololearn.com/WNSd1PCfSo5s/?ref=app). Of course, it may take a bit to get used to the style that comes with making games on the web as it is quite different from regular web development. Lastly, Python also has a module called PyGame that allows you to create simpler games for mobile, desktop, etc. Here's the website, if you want to check it out - https://www.pygame.org/news Hope this helped!
