    Yes.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    (that isnt a scripting language)
    What about Actionscript? JavaScript? Lua?

    You haven't even described what you mean by a game. A game can be a simple stone/rock/scissors text game on your hand calculator...

    A more graphical game, written in C++:

    Can I use this thread to suggest something?

    I suggest we make a C++ Game Programming FAQ and sticky it on the top of this board. This would help in 2 ways:

    1. People who are tempted to ask such questions as "Can games be made in C++" will be able to simply refer to the FAQ and get their answer.
    2. For people who are not as smart and ask the question anyways, we can reply, "Look at the Game Programming FAQ stickied at the top of this board. It will answer all your questions."

    The C++ Game Programming FAQ can answer such questions as:

    "Can C++ be used to make games?"
    "Which API: OpenGL, DirectX, SDL, or Allegro should I start out with?"
    "I want to make games. Where do I start?"

    It can also answer any other questions deemed worthy by the regulars and moderators of these boards.

    Most computer games, and many console games are written in either C or C++.

    I suggest you delete your post then.

    Seriously, you can. But in the future, think about what you say. No one wants inexpierienced people to help, but considering YOU ARE ON A C++ GAME DEVELOPMENT BOARD , you would/could imagine there being some possiblities.

    to be super technical, you are doing scripting in c or C++ because they generate sets of assembly instructions, so you *could* theoretically say that c is just a scripting language which scripts assembly commands together. just like any other scripting language, what is *really going on* under the hood can be abstracted from the programmer.

    just thought id throw that out there

    obviously programming in c is more difficult than say flash, and flash is WAY more abstracted

    But isn't that really incorrect? Do we not define scripting languages as those that are intepreted at run-time ... And that assm and machine code are not by definition? In which case c/c++ aren't interpreted at run-time only compile time which wouldn't make them a scripting language even technically?
