Make some text games. When you're comfortable with those, try out some 2D graphics.

Have you actually learned C++? You are familiar with exceptions, classes, inheritance, and the standard libary (like std::stringstream, std::vector, std::deque)?

If so, you might want to look at APIs, like DirectX, OpenGL, SDL, or SFML. Or, you might prefer to use a pre-built engine, like Irrlicht or Torque.

If you are just starting out, it may be easier for you to learn a specific game engine rather than learning to make your own. Game engines will already have all/most of the tools that you need to make a game so you can get the ball rolling faster.

There are many engines to choose from, have a look here: http://www.devmaster.net/engines/ for an overview of a lot of them.
