All of the above mentioned books are very good.  Although none of them deal with Graphics.  ( I have and read all 3 )  The first 1 will give you a taste of what you need to consider when making games.  All the games are simple, Text Based and can be typed in a relatively short time.

The other 2 re-enforce the C++ princables.

 

Depending on wether you want to do 2D or 3D is what type of book you want to read from there.  I am working on 2D so I picked up a book called " Game Programming all in One "

I also recommend Beginning c++ Through Game Programming.

 

Also there are video lessons available on youtube ( see sig ), www.marek-knows.com , and www.3dbuzz.com .

 

After you learn the basics of c++, then you can learn to make 2d games, I highly recommend SFML2 library, and my sig is full of information for that.

This is like saying "Hello I've just been born and want to get a job as a supreme court judge". Start simple- work on small, simple projects each of which let you learn a bit more than you knew before, so that you can build up to the level you need in order to work on the game you really want to make. If you try to bite off more than you can chew, you'll probably end up overwhelming yourself and losing motivation.
