I've coded in Java, C#, C++, C and dozens of other languages. In short: So very very wrong.
Just because you can't do it, doesn't mean that it isn't possible. From what I've seen, for example Quake 2 ported to java and .NET with very respectable framerates, it is very possible when done by the right person.
This doesn't prove that Far Cry, Quake 4 or FEAR are possible using Java, but at least it shows that more is possible than most people seem to think.
LOL, sorry my dear Gimbal, didn`t mean to catch a nerve.
You didn't strike a nerve
I was simply making a point. My apologies if I sounded like a java bitch for a moment there, it's so hard to give pure text the right tone to get a point across
