You're forgetting that some people don't have years to learn C++ or C#.
GML supposedly takes about a month to master and is a lot easier to use, not to mention I'm focusing on 2D only so it's better suited for me.
Also Unity costs a metric ton and UE takes 5% forever.
C++ takes 60 hours to learn. Takes 10000 hours to be proficient.
Trust me, it takes 10000 hours to be proficient with gm too. Took me 10000 hours to be proficient with C2 and anything else I want to master. Learning the basics is quick, mastery comes with time.
As for cost, unity is free and royalty free as of recently. You get a fully functional software that allows you to develop freely for years before you have to sell your game.
