      Papel Compared to Godot, it's a better engine if you're planning on making a 3D game, as the current 3D pipeline of Godot still needs plenty of work, which will result in worse performance.

    2. Unreal Engine is a professional suite of tools and technologies used for building high-quality games across a range of platforms. Unreal Engine’s rendering architecture enables developers to achieve stunning visuals and also scale elegantly to lower-end systems.
      Unreal Engine vs Godot Engine opinions
      Most users think Unreal Engine is a great alternative to Godot Engine.
      aaronfranke Unreal and Godot complement each other well. Unreal is amazing at high-end 3D and is great for things like AAA games, processing hundreds of millions of triangles, and simulations. Godot is great for 2D and low-end 3D games that don't require millions of triangles, and Godot is vastly smaller and more lightweight. If you want to "do it all", learn both Unreal and Godot.

      Mahboi Unreal serves the super high-end and makes heavy games with heavy load times and superb graphics, while Godot serves the low-to-mid tier games that will be lean and load fast but not be the most beautiful. Godot suits 2D excellently and 3D very well, while Unreal is only 3D. If you do not have the resources to make an amazing looking game, Godot is leaner, easier, more practical, and has a much younger codebase and design principles. For 3D AAAs, Unreal packs by far the most punch.

      egryboiz Android Studio is "just" a plain IDE for Android development app development. It's not tailored to or specific to game development.

      Papel Their move from 1.x to 2.0 pissed a lot of people, because suddenly all the perpetual licenses were stuck with the now discontinued 1.x version, while 2.x is subscription only. The free/demo version lets you use the whole program and all features EXCEPT export. So you have the option of only subscribing when you actually have finished your game and cancel afterwards.
