You could take a stab at SDL or PTK.

Can you give any more information about what type of game you want to create? How much math or physics background do you have?

You can make a decent game by working really really hard. What you want to start from scratch? No one can help you with no specifics.

1) Display Graphics to Screen
2) Have user interact with graphics

There's something funny with his nickname - I see both SDL and GCC in there. Those would be a good start, and an omen to boo. Rasp
