  • Well, the question would not be stuck at which programming language is "good" for game development, the best starting point is by asking yourself,-

    What are you trying to do and by which programming language can help you to achieve your final goal...?

    On the contrary, when I started programming in the past, I also thought that being a Game Developer may sound cool, so I did some research, one of it is - http://channel9.msdn.com/coding4fun/articles/Beginning-Game-Development-Part-I--Introduction

    However, I found out that I am not the type thus I didn't continue. :)

  • Basically you should start with what ever language you like. The language is not important. Maybe C# is a good choice, because it is relatively easy to start with and you'll find a lot resources through the web. You should start with the basics and continue working till you reach a certain level of experience. Generally I would not specialize too early in a particular way. After some years working as a professional developer you'll then be able to choose the right way to continue.

    I don't want to destroy your illusion, but be aware of the fact that it is very hard to be a professional developer. You have to carry on learning for ever and you should be willing to do more than others.
