## Mersenne Twister

The Mersenne Twister is a fast, efficient pseudo-random number generator with a very long period. It is not secure enough for cryptographic uses, but it is more than adequate for computer games. Due to its speedy and effective generation of pseudo-random numbers, a few languages (for example FreePascal) have already begun using the Mersenne Twister as its default algorithm for its own RNG.
