which 3d game engine should I use? Answered

hello,
I want to make a 3d game (in c++ or c#, I'm not sure yet which one i'll use) so I'm looking for an open source 3d game engine in c++ or C#.
I've found some engines like irrlicht, crystalspace3d and ogre3d already, of those 3 I like irrlicht the most but since there are hundreds of engines available I'm not sure whether this is the best one.
which one would you suggest and why?

I would recommend using blender. Although its not in any C based language it is very easy to use and its free. Its an all-in-one program too. Meaning you can create all of the models,textures, and videos for your game in blender itself.

Blender is a free 3D game engine, and has lots of supporting documentation and a pretty active community. Unless you need it to be specific to the C language family, that is what I would use to build your game.

Unity engine is quite good. I dont think it is actually open source but it is free.you can program in C# or a bunch of other .Net languages and has a pretty good community and literature.
