Most well known game engines

There is many games engine out there for game development and it's not a easy task to make own engine from zero. I will list most well known game engines.
Some people say that Scs Software need to change their game engine but this people or kids don't know anything about programming or optimization.  Scs Software have skilled programmers they have self created own Prism3D game engine that is optimized for truck games now some people say they should use Unreal Engine 4 that is a bad idea because Unreal Engine 4 is best suitable for shooter fps games and not for truck games. Also it is possible to make a truck game in UE4 but they must optimize it well. What Scs need to do is just update their Prism game engine to support DirectX11 & 12 and OpenGL in their recent interview Pavel said they will update their shader for Directx11.
