They're both fine and fairly similar. LUA is small and quite portable if you are implementing it into your engine. 

 

Angelscript and Chaiscript are also good if you like c style syntax.

Honest I'm a tad confused by this question, are you asking what scripting language is best so you can figure out an engine to use?

 

Or are you mistakenly asking to be able to programme an entire game with them?

 

If its the former, then there isnt a huge difference, lua is probably has an easier to understand syntax from my experience.

 

If its the former, you need to learn a programming language, I would highly recommend C#, similar to C++ but with many features of Java such as garbage collection.

Would that be the famous In-House engine?

 

There's no best for games anything. Depends on engine, personal preference, platform, type of game, etc. Stop asking that type of stuff and grab a game engine by the balls and learn from the how to script for it from doc/tutos/videos. Don't go learning a scripting language just because in theory it's the best, and learn by using that damn scripting language to build something in an engine of your choice.

 

DO IT!
