I'm interested in Game Development, I know OOP programming and so, but I never used a Stable Language.

My favourite language is Java, but people say that is not a good Game Language, since it can be slow.

I hate C# and Visual Studio (No offense), I use Linux and Windows; and probably I am going to buy a Mac in about... 2 years (Or when I get enough money)

I'm searching for a alternative to XNA, no .NET languages. I thougt SDL, but I want a framework like XNA.

PS: Not Pygame please, I use Python; but I don't like it. PS2: Why I can't see the Captcha in Opera ?!

Why is using something that is like XNA better than using XNA in the first place? Sounds weird to me –  Maik Semder Jul 20 '11 at 20:13
This is a rant, not a question. If you like Java, use Java. Or get over your "hate" for C# and Visual Studio and use XNA. Language choice is mostly driven by what platforms you want to ship on anyway. –  Tetrad Jul 20 '11 at 20:13
Meh :). I'm probably lame. But from coding perspective i do not find much differrences between java and c# :) –  Notabene Jul 20 '11 at 22:19
I'm glad that even though the question is closed, we can still post comments that are even less constructive than the actual question! –  Jonathan Connell Jul 21 '11 at 8:23
@dysoco alright, if nobody mentions the big pink elephant in the room, I'll go for it. He's called C/C++ and OpengGL. But after reading about your emotional relationships to programming languages, I'm not sure if this one fits your emotional state, however it fits your choice of OSes/platforms. –  Maik Semder Jul 21 '11 at 11:19

1 Answer 1

Plenty of options if you look around; however, if you're comfortable with Java, do program your next game in Java. Anything else is pointless, just like hating languages and IDEs.
