If you are reasonably comfortable with the C++ language, I'd recommend downloading, installing and configuring SFML and writing a simple 2D game, such as Pong, as a start.

it depends on what you are trying to make if you want to make a 2d game, i recommend to use allegro as it has sound, cross-platform, and it has some libraries for loading files from archives but if you want to make a 3d game, i recommend to use ogre and allegro together but it is very very dependent on what you are trying to make
