PHP is meant for interaction with a server. You will likely end up needing a server side language if you're going to store points and such on your server. But as for as the game goes itself, you'll want to learn all you can about HTML, CSS, and JavaScript because those languages are meant for interaction with the user. With those 3 client-side languages alone, you can now create powerful, web based games. A collection of cool HTML5 games can be found here at: html5games.com.

I like your answer but i want to know that which program language is essential for making computer games

It depends on what medium you want your game to be played on: if you want to be able to play it on a PC in a browser, then learn those 3 languages I mentioned. If you even want it to be able to be an app for a phone or a tablet, those 3 languages I mentioned will work. If you want it to be playable on a console or as its own standalone game, you can look into C++ or Java. There are any number of languages that can produce games.
