Javascript is a Client-Side web scripting language, not really suitable for creating games.

C++ is a popular language for creating games, or Java if you want to make a browser-based game.

Also, remember, Java and Javascript are 2 different languages.

I would recommend trying to learn C first because C++ may seem a little confusing for a beginner. I started off using something called RPG maker, but found that it wasn't as flexible as I wanted it to be. It's a point and click RPG maker that allows you to make a full rpg without typing 1 line of code (but it's optional). I learned the language needed to script with rpg maker xp, but it still wasn't enough.

What I'm doing now is making mods for doom/hexen. It's pretty easy, fun, and the languages take only a week to learn.

Minecraft is built in Java.
So the coding language depends on the enormity of the game you'd like to create.
If it's a simple puzzle game, you could try flash. If you want to move a step up and include 3d it'd be best to go with Java, if you want a complex 3d world with lots of intense graphics and ai and stuff, pick a C.

You may find C++ a bit easier to learn if you know Java, since they are 2 very similar languages.

I know how to use quiet a few languages, but surprisingly I never even touched java. Is it good? I've tried flash, but I think It's horribad. If it's anything like flash I'm not even going to try.

I'm not interested in learning flash at the moment (I have a lot of things I want to do at the moment) But what was so bad about it?

Unlike Flash, Java is an actual programming language as opposed to primarily graphics tools.

Unlike Java, Flash is a actual editor with an actual UI on top of an actual programming language.

The above people are all wrong. Use C# and XNA.

XNA 3.1 comes with a simple platformer demo. Expand it to teach yourself.

Small question before I bother with a serious reply: are you trolling or are you simply pants-on-head retarded?
