I think that is a very good observation.
It is a huge industry and currently I believe C++ & C dominate 
when it comes to core engine stuff.

I am not a games developer but I know that guys like Jonathan 
Blow would not use a language that has GC in it.

My motivation for starting the Laser-D project is to make D 
attractive to those who do not want the GC even as an option.

It is ironic that Walter was inspired to start his career in 
compiler tools because he wanted to write a game - I hope I am 
not remembering incorrectly!

Right now is the time to try to get into this market because 
there are multiple parallel attempts to do so (Jai, Zig etc).
