The problem that you risk running into with YouTube tutorials, well any tutorial really, is that if the creator has flawed programming knowledge, practices, or terminology then they will be teaching that flawed knowledge to future programmers. You have to be extremely careful on what you learn from...Just because you can find YouTube tutorials so easily doesn't mean they are professional quality or professionally accurate. It is better to learn a language well. In the case of C++, it is best to read C++ Primer (not to be confused with C++ Primer Plus) then pick a library like Allegro, SDL, or SFML (for 2D) and make parts of games while learning it. Of course always ask questions here and seek advice and show code as you go.
