If you already know C/C++ I suggeggest them.
I don't like .NET because I prefer to have the control of bits....
It all depends on what you are working on.
In the current visual computing arena, and specifically PC games, the most common language is C++ and the most common rendering API is DirectX. Most high end games also use a LOT of scripts written in a language called Lua.
Handheld development ( smartphones ) is done in Java/C# ( Android/WinMo7 ) or Objective-C ( iPad/iPhone/iPod )
cross-platform 3D rendering is really only possible via OGL. base OGL runs on desktops ( Windows, Mac, Linux ), OGL ES runs on handhelds ( Android, iPhone ) and pseudo-OGL is used on PS3 and Wii. Android has a "native" binding for OGL ES to avoid some of the perf cost with managed code.
using XNA gets you D3D9 level support on PC/XBox/WinMo7. Using D3D lets you target Windows.
You should have a target environment in mind and pick accordingly.
