HI!!!! Me and my friend decided to make a game and we need some advice!
-What type of games do most of you guys like best?
-What are the best languages to make pixel and 3D games?
-Tell me some multiplayer game engines (coding online) if you guys know (except Unity)
Thanks!

I like sandbox games or puzzle games best. For 2D games you should start experimenting with Love2D and Lua but then get to a real game engine. If you want to make simple sketch games, I would recommend using JavaScript for games because everyone can play web games.
A game engine is not multiplayer, you need to make a multiplayer server (usually).

@liltaco Thanks!!! But me and my friend just call "multiplayer game engine" cuz it means we can code together online.

@HQuan there's this experimental game engine I heard about called Superpowers http://superpowers-html5.com/index.en.html. It's 2D and 3D, 100% web based and one of you runs a server for Superpowers and the other one uses a browser to make the game. It's really awesome, I tried it once but didn't get far (I am not filled with determination). It's fully open source and I recommend you give it a try.

Start with the Godot engine, GDscript is a nice language that is very pythonic, or you could use good old cpp, either way it's hard to go wrong with Godot, it has a designated 2d and 3d engine. According to some metrics I saw on YouTube crime games are by far the most popular.

Unreal engine is a good one(but it takes up soooo much space and memory)
I would try playcanvas.

@gammawarrior Cool!!! Are they free?

i reckon you should make a story based game with multi chooses but make it 3d/pixelated
and making it very strict will mean less coding and it will be easier to make

@ethanheys That's what iam thinking! Thanks a lots!!! :D

@ethanheys Yeah! Me and @HQuan were discussing this today and our idea is quite similar to yours (im @HQuan's friend)

+1 for the nicely asked question. 75% of the posts we get these days are spam. Makes sense to reward the good ones.
