Hi

YouTube is your bestfriend.
Search up "Game Development Language" where Language is the programming language you wish to use.

Some good starting ones are C++(SDL and OpenGL), Java and C#. XNA may be good aswell.

Just only trying to enter this domain myself, only to know that its abysmally huge. But yes, OpenGL is one way to get your feet wet which is what I've been looking into the past couple of weeks.

This is an interesting launchpad, programming games in DOS
