I recommend C++.
Visual C++ is a very good IDE but there are other options. If you're going to make a DOS based game, you could use Borland C (www.borland.com) or DJGPP (http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/). They're both free, btw.

Why not use an engine? No need to build your game from the ground up.

I recommend SLUDGE or AGAST.

And even if you don't want to use those, there are infinite 3D engines out there...don't dare try to entirely program a 3D game.
Also, I recommend something like Calagari Truespace for designing the character models and adobe photoshop or imageready for creating skins and surfaces. And you know C++? Do you know it fluently? My brother is still trying to learn visual basic, we have a huge a game project between him, me, and some of our friends, but we have a long way to go...

I'd like to recommend AGS aka Adventure Game Studio.
www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk

It's a great and easy engine!

Yeah AGS is the absoultley best if you don't have any programming experience and want to make a game. Higly recommended.
