ok, well, you NEED to learn CPP to do any serious game dev.

People say all you need to learn is VB or another interpreted language, but C++ is the language simply because of its power.

how much programming you done before?

Ok, You need to understand these concepts.

Inheritance

Polymorphism

actually everything about object oriented really

Pointers

Arguement Passing

memory allocation

Before you do anything, you need to design what your going to make, and youll need the tools. Personally, i think you should use a premade engine and just program your game around it, Try Genesis or Jet or the new irrlicht opengl engine.

and read stuff on http://www.gamedev.org/
