When I started GameFromScratch, by far and away the most common question I got was “what programming language should I use?”. It’s amazing how much the world has changed in the last decade! These days game engines are by far more important than programming language to the majority of developers, and one game engine has risen to the forefront of most people’s consciousness… Unity.
I consistently cover a wide variety of game engines, here, on DevGa.me and on YouTube and one comment comes up far more often than any other… “Why Not Just Use Unity?”. Why would I use this game engine instead of Unity? So I decided to take some time and answer exactly this question. The short hand text version is available here as well as covered in a great deal more detail in this video.
