    Many programmers would say the most common programming language is Profanity especially when you write a program and the ****ing thing crashes. Still the real answer is it would have to be C as it is so versatile and is used for system programming - Windows was originally written in C and many other language compilers have been written in C choosing C because of its speed, stability, and near-universal availability.

    The most common would probably be C and it's variants, C++ and Objective-C (the latter mostly for Mac programs). In web development, you're more likely to see PHP and Python. In Enterprise software, you're probably going to see Java or C#.

    For games, it depends on what engine you're using. The Source engine (used by Valve in all of their games) has you code directly in C++. Unity3D runs on top of .NET so you usually use C#. The Unreal Engine (used in Unreal Tournament, Gears of War, and Bioshock, among others) uses a custom scripting language called UnrealScript.
