    Depends on platform you're developing.

    Big console games are developed in C++, with C and Assembly for low-level engine modules. Graphics is supplemented with Cg/HLSL - shader videoprocessor code within OpenGL or DirectX frameworks. Big Windows game development is about the same.

    Small console games on XBox Live Arcade or Windows can also be developed in C#, Java, or VB, with or without shader code depending how intensive or custom the graphics is for your game.

    iOS games for iPhone/iPad/iPod are usually developed in Objective C, although it is possible to write C++ code (if you're willing to jump through hoops and dislike Objective C that much).

    Android games are usually Java. Or C++ if you're willing to go native and solve cros--device compatibility issues. Shader code for graphics is done in OpenGL (or variations of).

    Other mobile platforms are either C++, Java, or some custom language framework.

    Web and Facebook games in the browser are either Flash (Action Script) or increasingly HTML5 and/or AJAX (HTML and JavaScript, with or without WebGL or SVG if you need more complex or 3D graphics).

    Well, I didn't know much about mobile, flash, android...wew, thanks. But (dun dun dun), I'm just curious, not asking for anything specfic to a platform.

    I'd rather do Malbolge. Fun fact: The first "Hello World" in Malbolge was HELLO WORld, and it was proclaimed "good enough" by the creator.
