Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    Half-life 2, Quake 4, Doom 3... I'd say at least 90% of the games out there is C/C++.

    The language itself has nothing to do with graphics - but there's hundreds of graphic libraries out there. For 3D you can try Microsofts DirectX, or if you want Open Source you can try OpenGL. For audio there's a buttload, but the OpenGL equivalent is OpenAL.

    For 2D there's the easy library of SDL to toy around with. But there are many many more, of all different sorts and kinds.

    You can do just about anything in C/C++ if you got the right tools for the job.

    (It can do the same as Java, C# etc., they're all just languages)

    I hope grammar and spelling do not.

    No idea what you are asking. Like Surrogate said, C/C++ are basically a requirement for game development.
    If you notice this notice you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    OpenGL is not open source. It's as proprietary as DirectX. You meant to say cross platform. Also the OpenGL 3.0 specification was just released. I won't say anything about it, but it's been deemed a failure. Go read the openGL message boards or slashdot.
