A good programing language

Hello, I'm searching for a good and easy language to do 2D Games, like BYOND/Tibia.
Do you know some?

As far as I know, anything besides Game Maker and DM is either:
1. A lot more difficult
2. A lot crappier ( RPG Maker for instance )

I need more opinions.
Come on people D:

You're on byond. Go for that. DM is easy to learn (as opposed to a lot of the others) and it's FREE!

Java is seriously awesome.

For 2D games? Ehhh ... as much as I do love the language, it's not my first choice for such an application, particularly for a developer who I would think, is looking for a RAD style framework for 2D games more-so than general language skills.

I had similar basic byond client functionality in one night with java. Tile system, entities interacting, etc...

What are you using for that? I assume it's not just layered on top of Graphics2D?

It is directly java2d (canvas on applet, bufferstrategy)

For one evening that's not bad, certainly. Is this something you'd be happy to share the source code for, to allow people a bit of a look as to what Java dev is like? I have plenty of non-gaming things, but they hardly seem appropriate to show here.

Sharing all the source would be scary... I'll paste bin the level class :D

Much obliged. Gives people a good idea of what Java looks like, what an evening's work might produce (although I am assuming general programming experience on your part helped there), that sort've thing.

Yeah. DM is cake compared to java, obviously. But if you don't want to use DM, there's what you're in for with pretty much ANY language.

I discovered that Python is almost the same as DM :D
In what ways?
