    I'd have to say it'd probably be a lot easier to try Java instead of C or C++, even though there are awesome libraries in C++ for that kind of stuff (Allegro, SDL). Nothing wrong with C, it's just that Java is a higher level language, and it simplifies a lot of things. I mean, it's got 2D and even 3D graphics built in.

    I would recommend the SDL: libsdl.org

    But you need to do some simple command-line programming before you attempt graphics.
