I'm 20 years old, Have not been to college but took an eight month course to learn Software Development for both Mainframe and PC. That was a good 7 months ago and I've been working in the IT Business Software Development field ever since. I guess My Question is where do I Learn how to program games? also Where do I Begin?

I would suggest you search yahoo for 'game programming' and look around
check the programming section here and learn some tile based/isometric stuff...
then just read every single article you can get your hands on till it makes sense

I'd also suggest picking up a copy of Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus. It will cover the basics and give you a good foundation.

Is it easy to read and understand? I've found some books on Game programming extremely dificult to understand!

I hear that "Windows Game Programming for Dummies" is supposed to be an excellent beginner's source. I'm just starting myself and ordered it. Should get it this week.
