Also depends on the platform but yeah, lower level languages are recommended if you need speed. Many computers now can handle "slow programming languages" so its up to you (favorite language plus engine that fits your needs). I personally enjoy C++ with SDL, C++ with OpenGL, JavaScript HTML5 canvas, and Lua with LOVE2D. I also like plain Java and Android dex/dalvik Java but its too much typing lol The most popular is Unity and its language(s) since it can deploy for many platforms I have some resources you can check out if interested. Sorry its slightly broken; I gave up on it https://code.sololearn.com/Wyp02xwvepns/?ref=app

Big budget studio games: C++ Phone app games: Java Web game: HTML + CSS + JavaScript and maybe a backend language if it's multiplayer. Indie game: whatever you want. C++ for detailed 3d on Unreal Engine, C# for simpler 3D or 2D on Unity engine. Game maker for pure 2D. Or you can say screw that and build a game with Python/Java/whatever.

I THINK THAT C++ AND JAVA IS BEST AND BEAT COMPARED TO ALL OTHER LANGUAGES.......

Maybe use Unreal Engine 4 for 3D realistic games :D

Every language can be used as long that the game engine supports it. Example: Java can be used in Android Studio. C++ can be used in Unreal Engine. PUBG game (popular this year with stunning graphic) in Android is written in Unreal Engine
