Maybe you should learn to program is C++, C, java or python or something first, maybe that is what he meant. I mean, making games is a very broad term. What do you want to do? Code? 3d modeling?

The point was not to discourage, just give a realistic perspective. It's not impossible for one person to create a "game" these days. It just means you have to do a lot of brainstorming and planning to figure out what your game will be and what it will and won't contain (3D? 2D? Console? GUI? Java? C++? Python?). You need to limit your scope to something one person can handle in a reasonable amount of time, and more than anything KEEP WORKING ON IT. Many wonderful game projects have died because their creators either got bored, frustrated or had other things get in the way (for me it was mostly boredom).
On the contrary, I think this thread should encourage the original poster to create a game, now that he has a grasp of what he needs to do to get started.Registered Linux user #270181

Also visit these forums for help with building games(having a good idea can be enough for finding free developers):
http://happypenguin.org/forums/ (also look at some examples in progress)
Building a game doesn't have to be difficult, you could start from an existing game engine (you can find a lot of them and also some "easy to use" tools for them in The Linux Game Tome).
