I prefer Visual Studio for most my developer needs. For game development, I’m most knowledgeable of Unity. I’ve also used RPGMaker, Love, Phaser. I usually make my own art assets. (I can draw with a little help) For digital art, I’m most comfortable with PhotoShop but Paint3D is also user friendly.
All that being said. As long as the language is not boring like.. COBOL.. I can learn it.
