Is VB good for game development?

Is VB good for game development? Or is C# or some other language better?
I'm a beginner programmer and would like to get into game development. I
can't find any decent tutorials, so links would be very helpful.

Thanks

What type of game development? C++ is considered to be the only
language for "serious" games, but that is just an opinion. If you want
to avoid C++, then I would probably recommend going with C# just so
you could use Microsoft XNA studio, as I don't believe they have
launched a VB version of XNA yet.

Also, here's a VB game programming site I found by using google - I
didn't look through the articles, but it seems to be what you are
asking for.

Thanks,

PCGamer,

In my opinion you should not use managed code, so that is either VB.Net or
C#

Well, I'm very interested in game development, I'm just starting out though, browsing here and there for tutorials, references, etc.. and learning about the game development industry... What i've realized is that, apparently, most of the games out there are likely to be coded in C++, is this because the language offers features which are better suited for game development? or just because it has been out in market for a longer period of...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
