You also need to be very aware of the fact that this is a relatively new, up and coming thing - so there are still challenges like: audio, browser compatibility, and input (gamepad), etc.

It's nice to also have:
- A decent image editing application (I like paint.net. It's free of charge.)
- A good debugger (Chrome's got this built-in)
- Example code. I think someone on this site has written a tutorial on HTML5 and Canvas game programming, but I don't remember who or how to find the tutorials. They could be in the tutorials section of gdnet, but I didn't look.
- A friend who knows how to do this sort of thing already.
- An idea for a simple game you want to create. Don't try to do World of Warcraft as your first project. Don't even try to do Zelda as your first project. Something like Whac-a-mole would be a good start. You can start with very primitive graphics, the AI is simple (Is it time to pop another mole out?), mouse interaction, keeping score, etc.
