Starflight is one of my favorite games of all time.
When it came out, we were all working in assembler. We laughed at the idiots using C.
When I looked at Starflight again years later, I realised it was coded in Forth. Stunned me, so I went and had a look at Forth.
It's beautiful, the code it produces is lovely. It's a complete head f*ck to work with, but I love it.
I would never have thought a commercial game could have been written in Forth, but I was wrong.
If you are good enough, you can write a good game in any language,
