It depends on your target platform.

Programming is a branch of mathematics.

More than a language, you'll need to get familiar with a game engine.


This is a list of them

As what WingedPanther and BlackRabbit said, there isn't a number one programming language that is the best as plenty of variables go into developing a game. However, if you don't have any knowledge in programming and would like to get situated, there are a number of "suitable" programming languages to learn. Most of them, if not all, are available on this website. The CC community will be glad to aid you during your ventures as a game developer. Technically, the language will make a difference, but assuming your new to game development (since your asking what the best language is), you shouldn't see a difference besides on how easy/hard the code is to you.

Send a like my way if I helped you or if you found my post useful or even just enjoyed reading my post.
Thank you :)

I have heard that hobby gamedev (twitter user) have used c++ for 4 years to make games. And he seems very pleased with it.

but of course there are many variables counting on this
how skilled you are
what platform
game engine or not?
what you are familiar with?
do you have a mess when you code?
are you good at naming variables?
are you good at commenting your code?

I found this webpage for you:

and this one on the exactly the same topic that is discussed right here right now:
read it, it is a really good covering of what programming language you should pick

It depends really, for starters you can say Unity3D which is C#/UnityScript. Most of the tripple A titles use C++ and a scripting lanauge python or ruby. It all depends on what platform you want, and your knowledge level

Like BlackRabbit.

I try to program in Unity3D with C# but you need to re learn your language with the game engine, there's full new library pre added and you need to deal with them.
