I suppose regardless to which language, read this. It is generally written for someone with no programming experience, but for the most popular languages it contains IDE, library, book and link suggestions for each. You really need to pick a language and library before we can give specific tutorial suggestions, but that guide will certainly get you started.
Of course, it isnt a comprehensive guide, there are also HTML frameworks out the wazoo, a number of Lua based systems rising in popularity ( Love, Corona, Moai, etc... ) and much more not covered.

I'm also working on a fairly detailed Python 3 programming series ( I build a small memory match game from scratch ), which can be found on my channel.

IDE choice is partly dependent on what platforms you want to target and what language you choose. If you only care about Windows, then the Express version of Visual Studio is probably the best IDE you can get. I use Code::Blocks myself, as I prefer to work with GCC to produce cross-platform code easily.
For video tutorials, you can try this guy. He's very good at explaining things (so long as you can stand his voice), and covers Allegro, Allegro 5, SFML and XNA which are all game programming libraries. He also a has a series on Android development.

That's an ok link for a beginner to programming, but the original poster is already an experienced programmer who just wants to learn about games.
