Scratch is an awesome tool for making games - there are lots of tutorials and it's easy to share your game with other people! You can try the "getting started" tutorial and then make up your own games, or jump into one of the other tutorials. You can also explore (and remix!) games made by other users.

One more thing: the Scratch Wiki has TONS of information, mini-tutorials, and ideas written by other Scratchers. It's a GREAT source for specific topics or questions like, "How do I make a character jump?" or "How would I create a platformer?"

Here are some other tools we like for making games. The top row is tools primarily in 2D; the bottom row is tools for making 3D games. To learn how to use them, try searching YouTube for tutorials, or as a mentor for recommendations!
