    I'd go with C/C++, as it is the 'general' language
    of choice when it comes to game development. However,
    for game dev, there is no 'best' language as almost
    any language could be used. The most used, AFAIK
    are: CC++, V-BAISIC, Java, and some others..

    For anything about game development, this site has it all:

    http://www.gamedev.net/

    I highely recommend to begin on PC platform
    for several reasons. Also, if you want, you
    can also learn an API such as OpenGL, or DirectX,
    but it's up to you.

    Whatever you decide, I hope this info helped.
