You're kidding right? WoW is written in C++ (Objective C for Mac which 
is C++). Lua (another scripting language) is embedded and is used for 
moding by Blizzard and the community. Games have to be fast and work 
closely with hardware (like graphic cards). They are witten in the 
lowest language you can hire. Right now, that's c/c++. Though be fun to 
see WoW written in Assembler. But good luck finding programmers.

Can you write games in Ruby? Of course. But would it make sense? No. 
Well mabe text-based games. Or games that wouldn't require 3D graphics.
