I'm not entirely sure if this is the right section because I'm kind of new here, so I'm sorry if it is.
I've been programming for 4-5 years now and i still se myself as a beginner. My skillset is large but the skill of the individual skills are beginner to intermediate. I'm a lazy person with high interests in programming and game designing who looks for a programming language to call my home. Starting a game project is my speciality but finishing a game project is a blank void. I've never really complete a proper game that i can be proud of because i just lose interest in coding the application after a while when i can't figure out something essential for the application.
But I'm back again with a will of fire(Naruto reference) and want to start over again with a new idea a new game and a new mindset.
I've looked at the following languages and i will describe to you why i liked or didn't like that language.
I feel that this language is more of a casual gamer and ad-maker than a real programming language sure action script is great at making small indie games but you can't really make other applications that interact with Windows. So this is a no-no language for me.
This is the only programming language i haven't left, i love this programming language in the sense that it's super-fast to create simple applications. However VB does not offer you the tools to create very well optimized applications and don't offer a decent library for game development. Still this language is fun and exciting at times.
C# is a great and very flexible programming language that offers good application optimization and a decent syntax. However the complications I've faced with C# is too big to remove all the good things. To give an example, Communicating with another form is a pain.
Now i haven't given this much time and this might be a worthy language which i can code in. Last time i used Python was a few years ago when my programming experience was pretty low so that might be the case why i didn't pursue it any further.
However creating GUI is somewhat advanced if I'm not wrong. I can't even imagine what proper animations would require of me.
Note: I've never created a UI from scratch.
I will finish this thread of with a list of what I'm looking for:
- Be able to find syntax errors quickly.
- The ability to optimize my application so they will run as smooth as butter.
- Easy-to remember syntax.
- Preferable support for Windows,Linux and Android.
- Easy to create UI.
So judging by my previous experience and interest what language do you think i should look into ?
Thank you for reading through all my rambling :)
