Setting ip tables to block all traffic

All I need to do is browse the net and open up some ports for the fps I play, Americas Army. I'm just worried about locking down my system except for browsing the web first. I can learn how to open ports later. What would I put in my ip tables file to do this? I've read the man page and also a few web sites relating to this and at least 20 different " help me with my ip tables " post. I just can't seam to understand wth to do. It's really frustrating.
