I don't see many people starting projects with C++ anymore

I wonder what the gaming industry would say about that ..

It'd be funnier if the lead developer at Id hadn't been experimenting with Java for mobile games recently. Although since they sold the rights to Quake I doubt there will be a Quake 5...

That C and C++ are the development languages of choice. Unless you're one of those mobile Java developers working on games for cell phones. I have absolutely no experience with that, however.
