    Which programming language works best for creating simple video games?

  • #2
    Today, because it is object oriented and compiles to binary (the native language of the target platform), the most popular game development language is C++[citation needed]. However, Java and C are also popular, but inappropriate for some projects. Assembly language is necessary for some video game console programming and in some routines that need to be as fast as possible, or require very little overhead. Fringe languages such as C#, Ada and Python have had very little impact upon the industry[citation needed] and are primarily used by hobbyists familiar with the languages, though C# is popular for developing game development tools.
