OpenGL is an Application Programming Interface (API) not a programming language itself. You need to learn a programming language like C/C++ first in order to use OpenGL for the graphics but bear in mind that a game consists of a lot more then just the graphics.

Check the "Getting started" page right here:
http://www.opengl.org/resources/faq/getting_started.html

As far as those "game creating programs" are concerned: they are all crap IMHO.
