Now I know someone out there is going to argue this. But the definitive BIBLE for Win32 programming is "Programming Windows with the Win32 API" by Charles Petzold. He has to be the guy who best explains it''s semantics, and explains everything very clearly.

As far as which to learn first, game programming or Win32, you should learn Win32 in my opinion. You will need to understand Win32 handles before you can understand many of the functions in a graphics API that uses Win32.
