Heh. It's all about preference. C++ seems to play a larger role in game development. Thats not to say that other languages are required in the industry.

Like I said in another post, my development staff used Python, C#, Java and XML to work on our game system.

it's really depend on what games you wanted to program,

graphical games? text based, action/adventure etc.

most games are written in Cplus, I guess this is a good as place as any to start.

you can get books that will take you through how to create games engines and stuff.

one thing I suggest is try going the GPL graphics route rather than direct X,

you'll likely find that you'll have a much larger consumer base as then all linux/Mac people will also be able to play your game and not just people with windows.
