I know all about loops, condition stuff (if, switch, etc...), normal functions, I can work classes, what do I need to learn now if I want to start making games? And where can I go about learning it (I havent the money to spend on expensive programming books, I'm saving for a new computer). Any input would be greatly welcome. -Matt

are the best I can think of that good tutorial style though an investment in a £30 book (buy second hand of amazon or ebay for cheaper prices) or two would be a worth while investment.

make sure you fully understand the basics of C++. (POINTERS!). then try to learn a graphics API. i would strongly recommend SDL. its very easy for a beginner to use. Cone 3D has some good tutorials to get you started on your way to making games.
