Sure Python can be used for video games!

Though it would be difficult to write a complex game without dipping into any
C programming, there are modules for sound and 3d graphics available.  Check
out PyOpengl.

Later on, when you find enough things you can't do in Python, you can learn
enough C to write some extension modules.
