C++ Primer is a good thourough book on the C++ language together with C++11 features. Do note that the book tries to discuss almost all aspects of the C++ language (most in a brief fashion) together with a large section of the STL. Since it discusses a large portion of the language, it's a good book to read through and then later use it for reference.

 

If you'd really want to delve into what C++ has to offer and how to use it, it definitely is a good book, but a large read ;) If you just want to create videogames using C++ you're probably better off reading a smaller (more game-oriented) C++ book in my opinion.

Primer is the only one I've even looked at a little bit. I really liked Noel Llopis' "C++ for Game Programmers" when I was a beginner. I recall that the primer book actually focused on teaching C++ instead of getting in the way with silly methodologies or decades old poor practices.
