I know of one game programming language that is garbage collected:
UnrealScript. It's used in the game Unreal, which a is Doom-style

There's a langauge reference at (last updated Dec
1998). There, you can read:

     "Garbage collection: All objects and actors in Unreal are
     garbage-collected using a tree-following garbage collector
     similar to that of the Java VM."
