ActionScript 2 was a lot of fun back in its day.

Everything just seemed to work. Even if you didn't have much programming knowledge, you could put together a game with just some buttons and "gotoAndPlay" statements.

Honestly, the language I know the best is Python, but I've been trying to teach myself shit like C++.


I mean, I know HTML, too, but does that really... count? Not trying to belittle web devs or anything, it's just HTML is a very different language compared to most others.

I used to care strongly about what language I used because I based my opinions entirely off memes. I for example used to really hate java because I kept running into memes it made you into a terrible programmer without myself even knowing a single line of java code or even how to use java beyond installing it to play runescape (Which funny enough doesn't even use Java anymore). Now I just use whatever as long as I can make a game out of it. But I do have a language hierarchy that I make a priority of what languages to become familiar over others. Assembly and C (C89 to be more specific) are my highest priority to be familiar with to become an overall better programmer in general so I can make better games. But I would use anything these days to make a game no matter how trivial it is. If it was just a small little snake clone in BATCH scripting (I know that BATCH is a scripting language, but I wanted an extreme example because I've seen some cool games made with very complex BATCH scripts), that's fine by me. I like a challenge. And using something like BATCH that wasn't even meant for games into a game of some sort is fun.

HTML is a markup language that tells the browser how to render the page. There is no programming or even scripting involved, HTML5 to my understanding is all just fancy marketing that uses other technologies to let the browser know how to handle a program or application made in say JavaScript or whatever else can be ported to the web. I'm still learning myself about programming and scripting, so don't quote me on this. So no, I would say that HTML doesn't count as knowing programming. CSS wouldn't count either. Even web devs would say that knowing basic HTML doesn't count as being able to program, they use other actual languages with HTML as a glue of sort to make web pages.

Lua! I wish I could do everything in Lua. Well, for now I'm with JavaScript as I'm developing for web.

Thanks Guys.


Keep doing what your're doing man, python is the best language to start on and it is supeeeeeer useful.

Exactly, stay away from things like Brainfuck.

Python for me, currently the easiest language I can program games in.

Personally, I like Python just because of how easy it is to use. Of course, that opinion may change in the future.


I'm quite new to programming. Am currently making a really tiny game. Play the Alpha Version Now!

I use javascript as my main programming language, for developing sites, or other application in nodejs.

For simple scripts and automatize life, i use Python.

Assembly is my favorite (although I hardly use it)

I like C and Lua


Though I HATE C# (I hate the way it works)

I unironically do the most programming in Brainfuck. It's the only language I can use without looking up how to do things every 2 seconds. There's no overly complicated commands or anything so coding is mostly headache free despite how different it is from most modern languages. I have programmed in other languages but they are all so confusing that I have to constantly peek at a tutorial to get anything to work.

SQL is the main body of my job.


Other than that, I do like Python and C#.


hee-ho, bitch!
