Please give pros and cons.

Visual Basic
- easier to learn

C++
- better performance
- more game libraries available
- can be portable to other platforms

VB is generally considered a toy. OK for your own personal enjoyment but not very well supported in commercial world. Managed .NET may change that perception in the future.

C or C++. Unless you do a lot of crafty programming, VB is bulky, and simply an awful tool for game creation.
