What kind of requirements do you have? If you don't know much about graphics, maybe something like Nethack would be best. None of that pesky math. If you have to use graphics, start with the 2d Graphics trail of the Java Tutorial. A quick Google search turned up some links like this one specifically tailored for game programming. When all else fails, break the problem down into small, managable parts and solve one problem at a time.
