Despite mentioning this, Serapth's point that C++ is not the 'end-all' stands. There are many examples of commercial games using other languages. For example, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game 'Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided' is predominantly Java-based[1][2]. The massively multiplayer online role-playing game 'EvE Online' is written in Stackless Python [3]. Moreover, there are many examples of social games, casual games, indie games and serious games that are not made in C++.
