Well first, You have to learn a programming language... Like maybe: Python, Java, C++, C#. I recommend Python but thats just my preference. The thing is you just don't make a game in one day of learning. Also you don't want to try to make a 3D game as your first game. What I did and still am doing was first I did a lot of text based games, then I would do 2D games, then i would do 3D games.

You should concentrate on what you enjoy doing if you make a game. If you don't like to program and you are the programmer the game will most likely end. If you are going to post on here you need Flash CS3,4,5,6 haha. If you want to post on the app store you need to use the developers kit on their website. I don't think you can use flash for iPhone games. (if I'm wrong feel free to prove me wrong)

as for genres, make your favorite genre. If your favorite genre is platforming and you try to make a shooter you don't know half as much stuff as you would if you tried to do platforming game.

Hope this helps.
