For a video game, the general software requirements are a graphics library - either something low-level like DirectX or OpenGL or higher level like SDL or SFML - a sound library - DirectX and SDL will also be able to handle this, also look at FMOD - and some way of receiving user input from the keyboard and mouse - again, DirectX or SDL.
If you can be more specific about the type of game, it will be easier to give you less general advice on what types of software are available to help you.

The setting of realistic goals is very important at this stage as you'll get the most experience and knowledge out of actually completing a game.
