up-to-date games uses high-level languages for scripting and basic  
gameplay. So from the principle, there is no reason why it should not  
work with Squeak, if putting some critical stuff in C libraries. But  
in practice, it may depend on the kind of game and the exact  
requirements.  There is a guy (xbox developer) who plays with Dolphin  
smalltalk, see here: 
introduction-to-talking.html. See also Croquet (
DirectX in Squeak may be a problem. I don't know if there is any  
package for this. Dolphin and Smalltalk MT have very good bindings to  
DirectX and Microsoft APIs in general.
