I have learnt Opengl (with win 32 api)for the past few weeks and I am looking forward to developing a game thats not very difficult at the same time appealing! I have no maths background and I am looking for a suggestion that will let me complete the game in 2 months time, can any one help ?

A breakout is a very simple game.
Collision detection and the bouncing is a simple addition and subtraction

Have you ever played fall down, or fall up? You could make a game like that except that you could have the ball fall in many directions instead of up or down. Thats just an idea but I personally would like the game for like a trip or something. You could also make an rpg game of some sort and the more there is to do in one of those games the funner the game will be to play it can still be a simple game unlike pong the ball bounce up and down where is the fun in that? If you were to look at game reviews the game is really heavily based upon game play so if you are good enough to make the game so there is alot to do than you should try for a rpg game.

Hope this answers you question. If not im sorry I tried. I hope that this makes sense.

3D FPS: Small Paintball Arena, if your not looking for 3d, maybe pong? Maybe a 2d RTS or turn based strategy.

How about... "checkers"? For your first time out in game development, you might not want to play too much with things like collision detection, or physics. Another good game idea might be one where you have a little guy running around a grid-style game area, moving blocks/ collecting keys/ unlocking doors... that kind of thing.

Space invaders, tetris, breakout, or pong.

Or Doom III.
