Try some simple games even in the console first, guess the number, tic tac toe, hangman. etc. if these are too easy do something more complicated with some graphics API, be it a game engine or simply DirectX/OpenGL. Try making pong, breakout, simple games, then maybe more complex games, Tetris, 2D slide scroller?

Eventually when you feel up to it and enough mathematical understanding try learning 3D..

I would recommend you start with some simple game engines, SDL, Haafs Game Engine, Irrlicht, Ogre3d, XNA.

Or learn a graphics API, DirectX, or OpenGL.

Yes, dos, command line programs.

And those are game engines/API's.

I'd strongly recommend against using Nehe or swiftless tutorials, they're both horribly outdated, (The last swiftless tutorial starts to touch OpenGL 1.5 slightly, the rest deal with OpenGL 1.0 and 1.1 features that are now deprecated).

Take a look at http://www.opengl-tutorial.org/beginners-tutorials/ instead.
I don't suffer from insanity, I'm enjoying every minute of it.
The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!
