I'm going to assume that youve done these console games in C/C++. If so I'd suggest using SDL to get some simple graphics on the screen. If so try this out http://cone3d.gamedev.net/cgi-bin/index.pl?page=tutorials/gfxsdl/index

The tutorials there are a bit complex but if your quick you should be able to pickup on what the important parts are. IIRC they are basically written in C so if your used to C++ features like cout and std::string then you might be a bit lost with the string/io code, but there is still enough information in the tutorials to get you started (so long as you have a decent handle on C++)

AIM SN is caecus18 if you have any questions.

EDIT: If your using MSVC then here is a quick tutorial on getting up and running with SDL.

Illumini was correct when saying sdl and the cone3D tutorials are well worth it. The tutorials are a great resource. With sdl you could make a great pong or tetris clone and then even do some side scrolling stuff.
