I am completly new to programming i am using the free version of C++ from Microsoft and would like to learn how to use this language and as well as that learn how to create a bare minimum game such as tetris which is mentioned as an examle to create on this site. I would like to know where to start to learn the nessessary information to make this game. I do not wish to go into anything i do not need to know to create game such as for example creating buisiness applications with c++ or thing along that lines. Also i would not like for you to point out an example of source code because i would like to independantly figure things out without stealing code. I believe a better ground understanding would be good to start out with before i fully step into game programming. I am trying to attend a colledge for this field of study , and would like to devote these next two years to learning a good basis of the subject. All thoughs that can help please reply!

I suggest taking some English courses while you're at it.

Don't worry about people like this. They're all around and generally have no conception of what's important in regards to constructive feedback.
