Hey everyone. I'm just starting to learn code and was wondering what language is best for making online games.

If you newbie in this field then you can go for C first. Its easy to learn and scalable. After C you can easily learn C++ , python.

There is a large list of languages ��in which online games are written, start with one, such as Java or Python, and then you will want to learn others, they are all roughly similar to each other.

If you want to learn the first language in a short time, you can try Javascript. This language is quite simple and suitable for developing online games (2d). C is also a very good option. However, keep in mind that it will take more time to study it.

Hi! I believe that C/C++ is by far the best programming language for games. This language appears as a requirement in a wide range of jobs, including tool programmer, graphics engineer, AI programmer, Backend Programmer, gameplay programmer and many others. Good luck in your new endeavors!

If you really want to start from the basics try learning javascript, but if don't, then start learning C first, you may as well learn C++ more easily afterwards

There is no single answer to this question. The choice of language depends on the specifics of the project, the goals and objectives set, as well as the need to create code from scratch or adapt it to a particular game engine.

Today, multiple languages can be used to create games for PC, consoles, and mobile devices at the same time. The following are considered the most popular among game developers today.

  • C++;
  • C#;
  • Java.

Each language is good at certain tasks. When creating a game, professional programmers rarely limit themselves to one option. However, the most popular programming languages in game development are C# and Java.

Games created using these tools are smaller, faster, and balance the performance and system requirements of the game.

C
Java
C++
C#
JavaScript
PHP
R
Arduino


JavaScript
JavaScript is a high-level programming language that is one of the core technologies of the internet. It is used as a user-side web programming language on 98.8 percent of all sites. Initially, JavaScript was used only for developing web browsers, but now it is also used to deploy server-side websites, as well as non-web browser applications.

JavaScript was created in 1995 and was originally known as LiveScript. However, Java was a very popular language at the time, so it was advertised as Java's "little brother". Over time, JavaScript has become a completely independent language. Nowadays, JavaScript is often confused with Java, and while there are some similarities between the two, the two languages are distinct from each other.
JavaScript is the most popular programming language in the world and is in demand among employers.

Python
Python is one of the most popular programming languages today and is easy to learn for beginners due to its readability. It is a free and open source programming language, with extensive support modules and community development, easy integration with web services, user-friendly data structures, and GUI desktop applications. It is a popular web programming language for machine learning and deep learning applications.

Python is used to develop 2D imaging and 3D animation programs such as Blender, Inkscape, and Autodesk. It has also been used to create popular video games including Civilization IV, Vegas Trike, and Toontown. Python is used for scientific and computing applications such as FreeCAD and Abacus, as well as popular websites such as YouTube, Quora, Pinterest, and Instagram.


  Go
Go was developed by Google in 2007 for APIs and web applications. Recently, Go has become one of the fastest growing programming languages due to its simplicity, as well as its ability to work with multi-core and network systems and massive code bases.


Java
Java is one of the most popular programming languages in use today.

Owned by Oracle Corporation, this general-purpose programming language with an object-oriented structure has become the standard for applications that can be used regardless of platform (for example, Mac, Windows, Android, iOS, etc.) due to its Write Once, Run Anywhere ( WORA). As a result, Java has gained recognition for its portability across platforms, from mainframe data centers to smartphones. Today, there are more than 3 billion devices running Java applications.

Java is widely used in the development of sites and applications, as well as in working with big data. Java is also used in the backend of several popular websites including Google, Amazon, Twitter, and YouTube. It is also widely used in hundreds of applications. Newer Java frameworks like Spring, Struts and Hibernate are also very popular. Since there are millions of Java developers in the world, there are hundreds of ways to learn Java. In addition, Java programmers have a large online community and support each other in solving problems.
Java is a more difficult language to learn, but experienced developers with Java development skills are in high demand.

  Kotlin
Kotlin is a general-purpose programming language originally developed and released as Project Kotlin by JetBrains in 2011. The first version was officially released in 2016. It is compatible with Java and supports functional programming languages.
Kotlin is widely used to develop android apps, web apps, desktop apps and server side apps. Kotlin was created to be better than Java, and the people who use the language have seen it. Most Google apps are based on Kotlin. Some companies using Kotlin as their programming language include Coursera, Pinterest, PostMates, and many more.

  PHP
PHP is an open source web programming language created in 1990. Many web developers find it essential to learn PHP as the language is used to build over 85% of the sites on the Internet, including well-known sites like Facebook and Yahoo.

Programmers mainly use PHP to write server side scripts. But developers can also use this language to write command line scripts, and programmers with a high level of PHP coding skills can use it to develop PC applications.

PHP is considered a relatively easy language for beginners to learn. PHP is a popular programming language, so a larger community has formed around it to help solve problems.

Thanks for the helpful article.  I think learning a new language is very useful nowadays.  I am for learning English, as well as Chinese, as they are common and needed in any field of activity.

 Most likely, you will need to learn the basics of Java first. Because there are a lot of languages, but not easy ones either. And here, Java is what you're looking for. But, in principle, each person has his own approach, his own choice, I just advised).
