First you need to get a compiler and learn programming. There are a lot of discussions on this board which compiler to get. To learn programming you can:
-Read books.
-Read tutorials on the internet.
-Try it out yourself using the compilers help file.

With some programming and hard work you can make your dream come true. Don't be discouraged if you see all those nice games out there.
Keep in mind: They have started somewhere too.

If your want to learn C++, you might want to read "Beginning C++ 5" by Ivor Horton, or "Mastering C++" don't know author.
I'm using the first myself, and its pretty good for the basics, unluckly if you want to just jump in and program a tetris clone or something, it isn't that great with teaching how to handle graphics. It seems to show more on how to use objects, pointers, loops, and arrays. Until you know that though programming graphics is just making bitmaps anyway.

Hope you get into it, it can be real fun as long as you go with your ideas.
