    maths is only for things like the physics of the game and other stuff like that. Another important thing you need is TIME!!! But the most important thing ofcourse is the graphics API such as GDI (which is probably the easiest even though its not that easy) or DirectX (I know DirectX and I would recommend it). SilentStrike has already stated this, but I just thought that I would elaborate on it a bit...

    I would recommend starting with Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus by Andre LaMothe. He has a very laid back style that made it easy to follow the various aspects involved.
