Python & Pygame

Profile icon

Is it just me or is this common thing to say for python programmers. Apparently people say that oh, you need to learn Python before you even touch Pygame which I think is kinda true but why so less or I must ask why is pygame not very popular? Why is C++ so hot for this sort of stuff? Well I think it is just because people just like it. C++ is a static language unlike Python which is dynamic so why do peeps like STATIC LANGUAGES it just drives me crazy!!!! Comment below and let's see people's opinions!

Python is not good for making actual games because it's slow and has poor support for async when using pygame. Overall, python/pygame is more for "toy" games than actual games

Pygame is a library based off of the python programming language. Therefore it uses the components of the language. You DO need to learn python before you learn Pygame. Also statically typed languages allow more control and are faster than python. Static languages allow a better understanding of a concept that uses oop and fp. Just try it. typing some more keywords will not hurt you.

@Bitkoshy
thank you. Also people like C++ because of the control it gives you. You can literally manipulate the speed of the computer with C++ .

@Bitkoshy
well thank you but do not focus on cycles. If the only reason that you did upvote was me upvoting then i advise you not to as it defeats their purpose.

My opinion : I don’t like C++ and Python, i like JavaScript(NodeJS and vanilla) and APL.

@TheForArkLD
Nice! Can you make games with APL? I know you can with Javascript cause I have done it before.

Being static is not a reason to hate a language... Also, pygame is kinda hard to work with, and there are just easier ways to create graphics

Hey you can vote this up as well remeber the deal if you do ? lol

Not everything's about cycles. Accepting an answer helps out to clear the system :)

@DynamicSquid
yea but common let's give some cycles to each other

Profile icon
DynamicSquid

@Bitkoshy
ehh... it's actually against the rules to do this. Cycles are supposed to be accumulated naturally, over time

@DynamicSquid
Yea true...sigh last time??? Pls
