    He's kidding (at least I hope).

    Generally C++ and some assembly is used to make games. Some of most common API's used are all of the APIs in the DirectX SDK, and OpenGL (in terms of commercial development that is).

    Wrongo... they use COLDFUSION with some HTML on top.

    when they really want to make the game go fast they program in ASCII.

    What about The Games Factory?
    I am against the teaching of evolution in schools. I am also against widespread
    literacy and the refrigeration of food.
