C++ has imbedded assembly procedures which is an absolute MUST for 3D renders. Also, OpenGL is what is used in most **** and is best programmed with C++. So is DirectX

Besides, there are an infinite number of C++ books dedicated to Game Development and only a handful of C# ones. That must mean something

Seee Manage DirectX 9 Kick Start, it is a good book for game programming in C#, in the preface page i think Author tells why to use C# in game programming, by the way from Direct X 9 it has full support of game programming in Managed applications and difference is obvious in terms of complexity. I think done using C# and DirectX in 1 line may span to 8-10 lines of C++ code....

Best Regards,

If you've not started programming properly yet.

Then I'd suggest heading over to the XNA Game Studio area, it's a must for Game programming newbies.

XNA uses C#, which is good for begining game programmers to start with.

C++ is more for the Pro who want to write their own Game engine and start from scratch, whereas XNA gives you the basics so you can learn all the Game programming background in 2d and 3d.

XNA Rockstar over on the XNA forums made a good helper post for budding new game programmers - http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx PostID=947086&SiteID=1 , which is worth a look as well.
